This study shows that Indians receive about 12 fake messages or scams every day through email, text or social media. An average Indian user spends 1.8 hours a week reviewing, verifying or determining whether a message sent via text, email or social media is genuine or fake.

The report also shows that 82 percent of Indians have clicked on fake messages or fallen for them. 49 percent of Indians said scam messages no longer contain typos or mistakes, making them more difficult to identify.

How to Protect Yourself from Scam Messages

McAfee says that users should think carefully before clicking on such messages. Cybercriminals use phishing emails or fake sites to lure people into clicking on links that may contain malware.

If you receive an email asking you to click on a link, even if it claims to be a great deal or it provides some useful information, it's best not to click on it. Always go straight to the source and interact with reputable companies.

Wait before rushing to interact with any threatening or urgent message, especially if it is from an unknown or unlikely sender.
