In every situation, cybercriminals find a way to break into the information of users or steal money. Now hackers have started seeking donations for COVID-19 via fake email id. In view of this situation, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recently issued a cyber-scam alert. Under this, it has been told that how cybercriminals are stealing users’ money by claiming themselves as WHO.
At the same time, they are making a dent in personal information as well. For this, hackers are using many fake mail IDs and asking people for donations for COVID-19. To deal with this problem, WHO has released some Dos and Don’ts.
Pay attention to these things of the World Health Organization (WHO) as well:
