<p>Despite the Indian government’s efforts to combat cybercrime and its punitive measures, hackers continue to devise novel techniques to deceive people via the use of artificial intelligence (AI).</p>
<p>Distressed voice of the daughter clone fraud<br />
Artificial intelligence is being utilized to deceive people and take advantage of their emotions. In keeping with this pattern, a new fraud using artificial intelligence vocal cloning has emerged, in which hackers assume the voice of a family member—a daughter, father, son, or other relative, for example.</p>
<p>A user of X, the old name of Twitter, recently reported such an occurrence on the social media network. Kaveri, an X user, wrote about an instance of AI voice copying. She said in her article that she received a call posing as a police officer from an unknown number. Her daughter was in serious peril, he claimed.</p>
<p>The con artist, who pretended to be a police official, contacted Kaveri and said that her daughter and three other friends had been taken into custody and that the police had recorded the son of an MLA. In addition to threatening the X user, the caller featured a voice that sounded just like her daughter and used the distressing phrase “Mumma mujhe bacha lo” (mother, rescue me).</p>
<p>The mother was concerned that she was being duped even though the voice sounded like Kaveri’s daughter’s and the manner she was speaking was peculiar.</p>
<p>Kaveri urged people to stay away from these frauds via messages on social media. On the X platform, her post had almost 7 lakh views by itself.</p>
<p>How are these frauds reported?<br />
You should notify your telecom service provider of any impending contact from an unknown number if you have also seen an AI voice clone scam of this kind.</p>
<p>To protect yourself and others against fraud, you may report the issue using the Sanchar Sathi Chakshu webpage.</p>
<p>Additional internet frauds<br />
In addition to this, people are alerting social media users to a new kind of fraud in which con artists pose as representatives of the telecom department and threaten phone users to block their numbers. When they are finished, they are prompted to press ‘9’ to transfer the call to the Department of Telecommunications’ IVR in order to keep the number alive. Following this, the hackers steal the user’s personal information by posing as Department of Telecommunications customer service officials.</p>
<p>You may report these calls on the Chakshu site as well.</p>
