अपना एप्लीकेशन फॉर्म भरे और अपनी नजदीकी तहसील से अपना सौर पैनल
*बिल्कुल फ्री* प्राप्त करे

भारत सरकार द्वारा बांटा जा रहा है *सोलर पैनल* अभी रजिस्टर करें


Translated in English it says

“Now every home will have light – Solar and Energy Department, Government of India
Please fill application for and received your solar panel totally free at the nearest district office
Government of India is distributing Solar Panel, Do register now”

The so called application for needs three steps, Open the URL given in the message by clicking on it, Fill the forms by giving our your name, mobile number and address, most importantly the third step, you have to share the message in 10 WhatsApp groups or friends. If you don’t share, it will give a warning in Popup meaning sharing is compulsory

This is just another WhatsApp Telemarketing scam. This has nothing to do with Government of India or even Solar Panels. You are just being fooled to give out your mobile number which once received in huge numbers, i.e a database can be sold for TeleMarketing. You will start receiving calls for ‘unsecured loans’, ‘insurance’, ‘investment schemes’ etc
