Pandya Store actress Simran Budharup fell prey to an online scam, but fortunately did not get herself trapped in it. Earlier this morning, Simran came across a mail claiming to be sent from Instagram, asking her to remove a certain post owing to copyright issues. She did follow the instructions as stated in the mail but she sensed something was amiss and retracted her details immediately.
Opening on the entire incident. She revealed, "One mail from Instagram of copyright on my post popped up in my mailbox. As an Instagram handler, I thought I must remove such stuff from my account and for that, I clicked on the customer service number which was mentioned in that mail. That number got redirected me to my Whatsapp and I messaged them that I received an e-mail like this one. They asked me to fill one form. I opened that form and there I had to fill in my username and my password. And there was a text written which said 'Not Secure'. I wrote my password but luckily that was the wrong password. And then I felt something fishy and I called a concerned person. That's how I saved my account from getting hacked."

Simran also revealed what her next step towards this matter is going to be. She says, "If I continue to get messages on Whatsapp then I will go to Police Station to stop this chain and to prevent people from falling into this trap." In the end, Simran has a message for all the mischief mongers out there. She says, "People should use their brain and energy in good things. They will receive money, value and respect as well. If they continue to do this then some or the other day they are going to fall into some deep trouble".
