Scam: Amul anniversary gift link of free Rs 6,000 on WhatsApp
WhatsApp message about Amul anniversary gift is a scam. Many people are receiving this phoney message with links.The message claims to give users a gift of Rs 6,000.
If you are a part of spammy WhatsApp groups, it is possible a message about Amul's 75th anniversary may have reached you. This WhatsApp message claims that if you participate in the survey, you are going to be eligible for a reward of Rs 6,000. Well, you guessed it right. It is fake. Some miscreants are at it again and they are targeting Amul's celebrations for completing 75 years.
Several people who received this message on WhatsApp took to Twitter to warn others about this ongoing scam. According to one of the tweets showing the screenshot of this alleged message, the user is asked to tap on a link that claims to offer them Rs 6,000 for just completing a survey. It may look like a benign link because it reads "www.amuldairy.com", but that is where the normalcy of this message ends. The link when opened redirects the user to a suspicious link of "knowledgeable.xyz", which does not look like it is related to Amul Corporation.
That Amul Dairy link in the message is, however, different from what is there in the body text. The link in the message reads: "http://palacefault.top/amul/tb.php?_t=16339198711633920036488". That is shady itself, so it is better to ignore both the link in the message and the message because both are nefarious at best.
