Today i received a call from 6289379495. Asking to do phonepe full kyc in completation they will credit Rs. 2000 as bonus in phone pe wallet and they  said  they had send a notification regarding it. But shockingly it was request to debit money amount apprx. 2000

Although it was suspicious for me from the very first time so i had a short heated chat with them.https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/599343/original/Screenshot_2019-12-22-11-39-45-043_com.phonepe.app.jpg?1576997336So, i thought to share the mobile number as well as upi id from which i received the call so that some dimers be stay away from it and be safe from loosing money.

Using random phone no they first check the phonepay account present or not. Then they place the order via nearbuy and generate the gift card using upi request. And might be the nearbuy account wud also be fake one.

I don’t see a reason why a UPI app should ask for KYC. UPI is tied up with a bank account which should be where your KYC ought to be done.

Some upi apps comes with a wallet where you can load money as well as cash rewards are stored. In such apps kyc is needed to get full benifits.

Received Call In My Another Number.
Scammer’s Number – 6351535811
He Claimed He Was From PhonePe And Same Thing That I Won 5K And I Will Need To Accept His Payment Request And Then I Will Get That Amount laughing laughing

Few Things I Learnt
Scammer’s Check UPI By Random Phone Numbers By Adding @ Paytm or @ ybl And So.
Please Don’t Keep Your Phone Number UPI ID Ever.
Also As Always Try To Avoid Clicking Any Random Sites Or Links.
And Block Such Calls The Moment You Receive Any Call.
