SOCIAL ISSUE

Online frauds and fraudulent online money harvesting has been increasing day by day with new techniques and platforms, especially during the pandemic situation. Many people have witnessed the same and last year, India had the highest number of complaints received related to online frauds. Fake news has been a curse to the society since the beginning of social media. We have witnessed a rapid hike in fake news during the floods and during the COVID-19 pandemic.


PROPOSED SOLUTION

Build an online aware community, where community members will be taught how to find whether a website is legit or not and confirm a news fake or real. Create an application or website where people who have been the prey of online frauds can post their experience and details of the fraud. This way other members can know about the same and take actions [report the website, click on "ad website"]. People will be able to post suspicious news spreading via social media platforms and confirm whether the news is legit or not with the help of volunteers. Reach more people and make them "online aware".

There has been a series of online frauds that happened to our friends from work from home works to MLM based frauds. Also, have volunteered for misinformation prevention campaign during the first phase of COVID-19.
