Online fraud is rife in the current digitalization era. Online fraud occurs with a variety of modus operandi. One thing that needs to be known, as with conventional crime, this online fraud has vulnerable hours. Unit Officer (Perwira Unit) 1 of the Cyber ​​Sub-Directorate of the Metro Jaya Regional Police Directorate of Criminal Investigation, Ipda Satrio, said that online fraud is prone to occur in the morning and at night. "Usually the perpetrator sends at certain times. That's usually at 19.00 WIB, then before going to bed around 23.00 WIB, or early in the morning when he wakes up at 07.00-08.00 WIB," said Satrio in a discussion entitled 'Beware of Cyber ​​Crime, What Should Society Do?' in Jakarta, Friday (7/7/2023).[1]

According to him, this is because people tend to be careless at these hours. So, he reminded the public to be vigilant. "The perpetrator sent us when we were off guard. We were not fresh, we opened the cellphone earlier, in the end we just followed (the perpetrator's orders)," he explained.[2]

He appealed to the public not to just click when receiving WhatsApp from an unknown number. Currently it is known that there is such a thing as fraud in sending invitations in the form of an application format (Apk). "In conclusion, we have to be vigilant when we receive SMS, news, from a number or website, a certain link, which we don't know. We also have to understand this package, don't we send it. If so, who usually uses our number to buy the package," he added.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be happy to assist you.
