Meghalaya Police cautions public on online scam involving old coins

Meghalaya Police on January 3 issued an advisory requesting the public to be alert of scammers duping people in the name of buying old coins.

East Khasi Hills superintendent of police Sylvester Nongtnger informed that various complaints have been received pertaining to fraudsters claiming themselves to be agents of “Indian Old Coin Private Limited” dealing in old coins and buying the old coins for a huge amount of money.

The Meghalaya Police officer said the fraudsters then send the victim a QR code for online transactions and once the victim scans the QR code, money is deducted from their bank account.

“It is hereby advised to the general public not to fall prey to such scams,” the police officer further said.
