This is yet another WhatsApp scam going on for years under different names. All they want is your mobile number.

How to recognize such scams ?

1. The government official websites have URLs ending with “” etc.
2. Such scam websites are poorly made, without any additional info.
3. They look alike i.e. vertical in both mode i.e. mobile and desktop
4. Most importantly, after filling up the form, site asks you to share the message in 8 or 10 other WhatsApp groups or contacts.

How does these work ?

Since it’s not asking for any money and promising something very tempting e.g. Rs. 4500 per month for nothing, people fall for such scams and fill it following all instructions.

They makers of such scams usually post it in many WhatsApp groups and people take over from there. 1 man share to 8 groups, out of average 25 group members, 5-10 fall for this and share in their 8 groups and within hours, lakhs of people register.

The scamster gets a database of lakhs of Mobile number which he can sale to Tele Marketers and people will start receiving calls for insurance/investment etc..
