The cyber frauds have been increasing in Jammu & Kashmir like the other parts of the country, but what needs to be done is to ensure that no secret documents, data or passwords are shared with the unknown people in any way. As far as the reports are concerned, the Kashmir Valley has witnessed 2145 cases with regard to cyber fraud at Cyber Police Station Kashmir Zone in the past three years while as the highest number of such cases were reported in last year with 948 cases. The mounting number of cases is testimony to the fact that more and more people have been falling prey to these fraudsters, which needs to be put to an immediate end. At this juncture, the Cyber Police has been making tremendous efforts to fight against the fraudsters and ensure that the amount lost by the complainants is recovered.
