Mumbai Police's Twitter handle is well known for using innovative ways to deliver public service messages. Their tweets are relevant, topical and witty - and we think their latest tweet, specially, deserves all your attention. In this day and age, where the Internet is omnipresent and where we rely on it for everything from grocery shopping to net banking, this tweet on cyber safety is an important reminder on how you can protect yourself against online scams.
Shared about an hour ago, the tweet shows screenshots that 'translate' the language used by scamsters into their real meaning. A suspicious message like "Congratulations, you have won $1,000,000," for example, may often mean "Beware, you may lose all that you have".
"Unfortunately, there's no translation assistance available for the language of online scams. Fortunately, it doesn't take much to get it," wrote Mumbai Police while sharing the four pics to warn netizens about cyber scams.
Since being shared online, the tweet has collected over 150 'likes' and a lot of praise.
