Guwahati: The popular Hindi-television game show Kaun Banega Crorepati  (KBC) is now being used by fraudsters to defraud citizens by sending them fraudulent and spam messages, informed the West Jaintia Police.

Police said these messages are being circulated via apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram, among others, using international numbers (+92,00, & +11).

The format of the show (KBC) is similar to other shows in the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? franchise where contestants are asked multiple choice questions and must select the correct answer from four possible choices, and are provided with lifelines that may be used if they are uncertain. Since the 2013, the top prize of KBC has been ₹7 crore.
