Frauds are using the promise of a "part-time job" or "work from home" to extract money from unsuspecting victims, with many falling for the trick of liking YouTube videos for small rewards before being asked to invest in products or bitcoins. Data from Mumbai's cyber police shows that 65 people were defrauded in this way in the first four months of the year, with 103 such cases reported for the same period last year. People aged between 25 and 55 are particularly targeted, with many looking for part-time work or work from home jobs due to the pandemic.
