When one person doesn't performs his duty, many suffer.Failure on part of one person to evade performance of his duty or not make effort causes huge losses to many in general and has cascading effect.
This is in reference to a phishing scams that are now a new normal in our daily life. Many people get calls from imposters who claim to be bank employee, etc and convince people to share their card or bank details and whisk away huge sum of money in a matter of few minutes. This I have known for over 2 years and even two of my known person have been a victim of such phishing scams. Both of the together lost around Rs. 60000. Now, both of them complained to the police also but nothing happened as police did not even file FIR. A simple non cognizable complaint was lodged with no further action on the same.
Something similar happened to daughter of Delhi CM and within few days the culprits were also caught. But, for public in general there is no respite. Police know that most of the scammers are from a small town in Jamtara, Jharkhand and Mewat, Harayana but still they do not act on complaints received.
This apathy on the end of police not only causes huge financial losses to people but also a mental harrassment when the law protector does not act on the complaints received. They shy away from performing their duty and we become the ultimate sufferer.
More money is spent on educating people how not to fall prey to such scams but if the law and police do their task properly then no such things will ever happen. If they catch the culprits at the first instance of complaints, there will be no further crimes like these.
People who honestly pay taxes are bombarded with tax notices but those who are cheating everyone gets away without a scratch.
