It has been a busy time on MPL with fantasy cricket players in full flow. MPL has always been your one-stop destination for all fantasy-related activities. With several new contests and features added, playing fantasy cricket has been even more rewarding.
We have seen a record number of fantasy players registering on MPL and building their fantasy cricket teams during the now-postponed Indian T20 league. On MPL, apart from playing fantasy cricket and a host of other games, users also have a chance to interact with fellow competitors using the chat option. This feature has significantly helped many users meet like-minded people and improve their people skills.
However, over the last few days, there have been instances where we have seen a rather unfortunate trend of fraudsters trickling on to the chat boxes of authentic users posing as MPL representatives in a bid to scam them.
We will shed light on some of the do’s and don’ts that you should remember every time you play on MPL.
The most common report which we have been receiving off late is fraudsters getting onto the chat boxes of users and claiming that they will give an app on which a user can edit teams on MPL after the match has started. They then go ahead and ask for an OTP, and if you provide that, there is a high possibility you run a risk of losing money.
We would like to reiterate that users can make as many edits and amendments to their fantasy cricket teams till the first ball of a match is bowled. Once a match begins, the teams are locked, and you can by no means edit your teams.
Any change in terms of rules for your fantasy teams on MPL will be directly communicated to you via the website, and be rest assured you will not be missing out on anything.
Here are some more do’s and don’ts you should keep in mind while creating your fantasy teams on MPL or chatting with someone.
– Never share your OTP with anyone over chat or phone. No MPL officials will ever call and ask you your OTP no matter what. The OTP is a confidential entity and should never be shared with anyone.
– Never reveal personal information like your PAN card number or bank account details on chat, no matter how well the user is acquainted with you.
– If you come up against a user asking for your personal information, open the user’s profile. Click on the : sign, placed at the top right-hand corner. Then click on report.
– In addition, if you feel the user is still harassing you, you have the option to block him/her. To do so, select the user in the chatbox. Click on the top right-hand corner. Click on Block and the said user will not trouble you anymore.
Your wellbeing is of paramount importance to us. In case you feel a particular user is troubling you continually, report the user to MPL. We assure you, we take immediate action on reported users. MPL has a dedicated team working for your safety.
