Mumbai Police warns citizens to beware of fraudsters while buying liquor online

Mumbai Police have warned citizens to beware of online fraudsters while buying liquor. Many people are on the lookout to dupe those looking to buy liquor online in Maharashtra amid the coronavirus lockdown, and 73 mobile numbers used by these fraudsters have been identified by the cyber cell of Mumbai police, an official said on Friday.

The official said some people were not following the procedure set down by the state excise department to purchase liquor online, and were calling up easily available numbers on the internet which promise delivery.

"Some of them have been duped by fraudsters operating these numbers," he said.

The official added the Association of Progressive Retail Liquor Vendors (APRLV) was accepting cash on delivery rather than ask for online payments in order to curb such scams.
