Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scheme - Rs 25,000 - Fake news

A message circulated on Facebook and WhatsApp that the government is offering Rs 25,000 to every family of the country. The message carries a link that is supposed to take registrations of people for the scheme. This viral message is false and the whole thing is a scam. The link takes to a fake website which takes your personal information and tells them to install an app to become eligible for the scheme.

It stated:
According to the new budget of 2020, one person from every family in India are being given Rs 25000 under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. If none of your family members have availed this scheme, click at the link below to fill the form and get Rs 25000.

When u click the pmyojna.ssctechnical.com it takes you to a website that the banners for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Prime Minister Housing Scheme) Shahri (urban) and Gramin (rural) with the picture of PM Narendra Modi for your name, phone number, address, and pin code.

The website asks to download “PM official app” to verify your mobile number or the registration will be cancelled.

Finally it is redirected to VideoBuddy, where PM Modi does not have a video buddy app its clearly came to know that its is a scam these are normal these days. 

The URL of the website forwarded with the message gives it away that the whole thing is a scam. The government of India end in (dot)gov(dot)in or (dot)nic.(in). The website in question here ends in (dot)com. The official website of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is “pmaymis.gov.in” and not pmyojna.ssctenchical.com.
