Scamsters are always looking at new ways to dupe gullible citizens and in India, the Google search has become the latest fraud tool for them. Note that this is not a hack or vulnerability from Google’s end but a simple misuse of a service that Google made to help internet users.

We mostly do a quick Google search to find information about local businesses. But the next time you do a Google search to get the customer care number of some service be very careful as a wrong number might prove to be costly. Recently, a woman lost Rs 95,000 after she searched for the customer care number of Swiggy Go and contacted a so-called executive to get her issue resolved. Here is the most common ‘Google scam‘ that people are losing money to and what you should know about it.
