Apart from this, any ID is fake. The government has created a PM-Cares fund to combat the corona virus epidemic, in which everyone, from the common man to the big corporate, can contribute. The monitoring body said that CERT-In has received several reports about fake UPI IDs, which are similar to UPI IDs of ‘Prime Minister’s Civil Assistance and Relief Fund’ (PM-Cares) in emergency situations.
