The number is 7077798111.
Bhubaneswar DCP Umashankar Dash said, "A specific type of fraud has come to our notice.
The customers are placing order for expensive mobile phones with high-quality features and using online mode for payment.
However, they are receiving a thick glass of a mobile phone size packed inside a zipped box." The DCP has requested the citizens to be cautious while downloading apps on mobile phones and said the usual way of sending OTP is no longer being used by fraudsters.
