New Delhi :  

After pre-GST sale was over, WhatsApp messages circulated which claimed that Amazon India is still having the sale of electronic products at a very cheap price especially for Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.

The 32GB Redmi Note 4 is claimed to be priced at Rs. 1,099 and the 64GB is said to be priced at Rs. 1,299 respectively as a part of the sale, which was actually a scam.

The scam worked with WhatsApp message which included a link. Once you click on the link, it will take you to the phishing site named Amazon-gst-sale with the Amazon logo. 

Clicking on the sale photo user will be taken to a website with full of ads. On the website, you will be asked to choose the product and give your personal details such as phone number, name, email id and address. It will ask you to send the message to eight WhatsApp groups to confirm the order. Eventually, you end up spreading the scam.
