In two years Rs 200 crore has been lost through online fraud in Kerala in over 14 different registered cases.
Most of these cheating cases were reportedly drafted through fake Facebook accounts and dubious lotteries.
Manoramaonline reports that victims who have lost money in online lottery scams include IAS officers, bank officers, teachers and scientists.
The report says that recently a gang of Nigerian nationals have acquired more than Rs 11 crore in a single case.
Victims are generally from Kozhikode and Malappuram districts according to the reports.
