Cyber frauds reporting system developed

ITANAGAR, 15 Jul: Victims of financial frauds can take advantage of the ‘Citizen financial cyber frauds reporting and management system’, developed by the home affairs ministry to deal with financial frauds.

As per the system, any victim can dial the helpline number 155260 and lodge a complaint.

“If one dials helpline number 155260, there is the option to access the state -like ‘press 1’ for Arunachal Pradesh,” the Arunachal Pradesh Police’s public relations officer (PRO) informed.

Important details will be taken by the operator, and they will forward the details to the relevant banking institutions and fiduciary agents.

The PRO informed that the module has been developed “as there is an increase in access of financial systems via usage of digital and mobile banking portals, and the risk of financial fraud through the banking system has also increased.”
