An attempt has been made to defraud Bhat-Bhateni Super Market by creating a fake account on social media. A message is viral on social media where a group of fraudsters asking them to fill in a question and answer saying that they will get up to 5000 cash for opening a new branch of Bhat Bhateni.
The supermarket has issued a message on its official website saying that such messages are ‘false, be aware’. Panu Poudel, manager of Bhatbhateni Super Market, told Ratopati that there was an attempt to cheat by making a fake ID and the police have been asked to investigate it. He said – ‘We have requested the Valley Crime Investigation Office to investigate that.’
An officer of the Crime Investigation Office informed Ratopati that the fraud gang may have spread such a message to gain access to the customer’s bank account through phishing.
