Rajasthan Man Poses as IAS Officer Tina Dabi on WhatsApp, Asks for Amazon Gift Cards

A youth from Rajasthan’s Dungarpur has been arrested for allegedly trying to impersonate IAS officer Tina Dabi in order to dupe people over WhatsApp. The matter caught public attention after Urban Improvement Trust secretary (Rajasthan Administrative Service) Sunita Choudhary got a message seeking an Amazon gift card in Dabi’s name, reports India Today.

The youth registered a number on WhatsApp and set Dabi’s photo as the display picture. His modus operandi involved texting unsuspecting people and asking for Amazon gift cards of various amounts. Usually, no one would suspect that he was an impersonator because of his impeccable English.

The matter came to a head when he messaged UIT Secretary (RAS) Sunita Choudhary on Monday evening, asking for Amazon gift cards. Initially, Choudhary too was beguiled, thanks to his flawless English. She thought it was the real Dabi. “I thought she had some work. However, the fraudster sought Amazon gift cards from me in the messages. But I don’t use Amazon,” India Today quoted her as saying.

However, she thought of calling up Dabi to confirm. The real Dabi, of course, was shocked to hear what was happening. Dabi also happens to be the Jaisalmer District Collector, and hearing about the cheating attempts, she immediately informed the SP.

The Jaisalmer SP and a cyber team traced the impersonator’s number back to Dungarpur district. He informed the Dungarpur SP and that was how the youth came to be arrested. He is currently being questioned.

In light of the matter, Dabi urged people to exercise caution when they receive messages from unknown numbers. She also made it clear that she has only one official contact number.

Tina Dabi graduated from Lady Shri Ram College and topped the 2015 Civil Services exam in her first attempt. She was 22 back then.

In an interview in 2015, Dabi said that she wanted to be a role model for girls who want to clear the UPSC exam in their first attempt. “I did expect I would make it to the list because my exams went well, but number 1 – that’s something that I would call the stuff of dreams,” she said.

なぜAnkerのポータブル電源は劣化しにくい? メーカーに聞くその理由とメリットとは

小型家電にも使える32万mAhの長寿命ポータブル電源  Ankerは、これまでに長寿命ポータブル電源シリーズを3モデル展開しており、それぞれがAmazon売れ筋ランキングで1位を獲得してきました。  今回発売された「Anker 555 Portable Power Station(PowerHouse 1024Wh)」は、この長寿命ポータブル電源シリーズの新ラインナップに相当します。 【画像】Ankerの「Anker 555 Portable Power Station(PowerHouse 1024Wh)」を見る(4枚)  特徴は、大容量であり、ポート類を豊富に備えていること。バッテリー容量は320,000mAhで、iPhoneなら約73回、ノートPCなら約16回の満充電が可能とされます。  ポート類は、AC差込口x6、Anker独自技術のPowerIQ 3.0(Gen2)を搭載したUSB-Cポートx3、USB-Aポートx2、そしてシガーソケット。 「Anker 555 Portable Power Station」は1台で、最大12台の機器を同時に充電あるいは給電が可能。AC定格出力は、1000Wとパワフルなため、扇風機や小型炊飯器、コーヒーメーカー、電気毛布など日常生活に必要な小型家電も使えます。 劣化しにくい理由はリチウムイオン電池の素材?  同製品では、経年劣化が少なく、安全性が高い「リン酸鉄リチウムイオン電池」を先駆けて採用していることもポイント。一般的なポータブル電源の約6倍の長寿命を実現しています。 「リン酸鉄リチウムイオン電池(LiFePO4)は、リチウムイオン電池の一種です。一般的なポータブル電源で採用されることが多いニッケルコバルトマンガン酸リチウムイオン電池と比べると、リン酸鉄リチウムイオン電池はサイクル寿命が長く、最大容量が初期容量の80%に低下するまでの充放電回数を誇ります。  また、熱安定性に優れ、安全性がより高い点も特徴です。また、Ankerの長寿命ポータブル電源シリーズでは、リン酸鉄リチウムイオン電池の中でも特にサイクル寿命が長い電池を採用しており、サイクル寿命は3000回以上を誇ります」(アンカー・ジャパン 新規事業本部 パワーストレージ事業部 リードマネージャー、植田 恭平氏)  なお、Anker 555 ...
