Chandigarh, August 14

State Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla today cautioned people not to fall prey to online swindlers, who were promising free smartphones under the ‘Punjab Smart Connect Scheme’.

Taking strong exception to the messages being circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms, Singla said the scheme was solely for Class X students studying in government schools.

He warned miscreants of dire consequences under the cyber crime prevention laws for indulging in this kind of “mischievous online fraud”. Singla asked people of the state not to follow any messages or click on any URL message being circulated via instant messaging services, such as, WhatsApp and SMS, which ask users to register themselves first to get free smartphones under the government scheme.
