On Amul Dairy’s 75th anniversary celebrations, some fraudsters are using the event as a means to scam people. If you receive a message on your WhatsApp with a label of www.amuldairy.com, don’t click on it as this might give access to your personal details or even bank details.
The message further adds that if you take part in the following survey, you will be eligible to win prize money of Rs. 6000. Let me break it to you, it’s fake!
Several people have received this message and warned others by posting about it on Twitter. They have been kind enough to let us know the whole process of this scam. Once you click to open the link, it redirects you to “knowledgeable.xyz”. Both the links look fake so it’s better to stay away from them.
One of the users was even smart enough to check the authenticity of the same and directly questioned the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, asking if the ongoing money lottery is real or fake.
Amul Twitter handle pinned the related post, so it’s better to refrain from being involved in such scams.

The Amul dairy celebrated its diamond jubilee earlier this year. It started in the year 1946, with the Amul Co-operative movement, where it took 250 liters of milk in two villages of Gujarat. Today, it handles 29 million liters of milk every day. Amul Milk is owned by Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which had gained a turnover of Rs. 38,542 in the last financial year.
Cybercrimes have increased a lot these days. From scamming people online to doing fraud by sharing links, cybercrime is on the rise. The Amul Dairy 75th anniversary gift link is one of its examples and we would say it indeed is fake and would suggest you not fall for it and stay safe. Not only this but refrain from falling for any such online scams.
