It has been more than a month since the coronavirus was lockdown in the country. Having to stay at home for a long time makes it uncomfortable for some to spend time.

There has been a flood of unique ads on Facebook for some time now to take advantage of this mentality. You may have been seeing ads on your Facebook wall for the past few days with attractive offers from the world famous Netflix for video streaming by making dozens of fake pages.

Although it is not illegal to use Netflix, there is no legal way to pay for it from Nepal. Due to which mobile banking, internet banking and digital wallet are not found to be open and advertised for payment through any medium.

But using the same digital wallet to raise money in the name of Netflix is ​​increasing. It has been found that Netflix payments are made by creating personal accounts in payment service providers including eSewa, Khalti and IME Pay.

The advertisement on the Facebook page Netflix Nepal offers an additional Rs 199 service fee of Rs 499 to Rs 1497 Netflix subscription offer.

Similarly, a Facebook page called Netflix Nepal has advertised an ultra HD premium package for Rs 900. This page operator has been taking payments in the account opened in ESEWA and IME Pay.

Another Facebook page called Premium Account Solutions offers a verified Netflix account from PayPal.

It is mentioned that it will cost Rs 2,000 for a PayPal account other than Netflix and Rs 2,500 for an account with Netflix. The operator of this page has come to know that he also receives money through iSeva, Khalti, IME Pay and also through bank transfer.

Another page called A2Z Online has also been boosted. The page, which is advertising a special offer for the lock-down period, mentions a package of Rs 700 to Rs 2100 per month. The person who created this page seems to understand the amount in the pocket and the account opened in the service.

But Roshan Lamichhane, chief operating officer (CEO) of Esewa, says they have not made any arrangements to pay for Netflix. "Someone may have paid for Netflix by opening a personal account in the wallet," he says, "but Netflix has not yet made arrangements to pay from Nepal." So taking payments in the name of Netflix is ​​bad. We will increase our monitoring of such accounts until further notice and suspicion. '

Bam Bahadur Mishra, executive director of the foreign exchange department of Nepal Rastra Bank, said that such extortion was illegal. "Payment for ads from Facebook, Google, etc. is also prohibited from here," he said.

SSP Navind Aryal of the Nepal Police Cyber ​​Bureau said that they have received information that between 200 and 3,000 people are being cheated in such activities. "As it is a small amount of fraud, the crime branch is taking action," he said.

Lila Raj Dangi, head of the cyber pillar under the metropolitan crime branch, said no such complaint had been lodged so far. "We will definitely take action if any complaint is received and information is received," he said.
