What if that video was actually impersonating someone famous and encouraging you to invest in a fake company? Welcome to the world of deepfake scams. Once such case has been reported from Mumbai, where a 54-year-old Ayurveda doctor from Andheri, became the latest victim of a deepfake scam and lost over Rs 7 lakh.
