Also some advertisements are posted in the Newspaper or Social Media where it is informed that there is a mass recruitment for any job thereby innocent job seekers are lured to deposit money in the pretext of registration fee, processing etc., or lured with handsome pay where ultimately job aspirants are dragged into human trafficking.
Disturbing anti-religious/anti-national/obscene videos/pictures/messages are also being circulated/shared in masses without verifying its authenticity or realizing that the same may have adverse effects on the minds of the person receiving it.
