Don’t fall prey to social media ads for black fungus medication


If you or your friends are desperate for black fungus medicine, beware of advertisements on social media and on certain websites.

With the increase in black fungus cases and the shortage of drugs impacting the treatment of patients, cybercriminals have found a new way to fool people.

Cyberabad police put an end to a scam and arrested cybercriminals who cheat on patients and relatives, who are desperate for black fungus drugs.

Following a complaint, Cyberabad police found that a bogus listing on an e-commerce site made people buy the drugs at exorbitant prices.

“The complainant searched for the black fungus drugs online and found a seller, who promised to deliver 60 injections for ₹ 8.32 lakhs,” a Cyberabad spokesperson said.

Although he transferred money to the bank account number, the complainant had not received the injections.

Police said the fraudsters were posting ads on various websites and social media promising prompt delivery of black fungus medication.

Patients and their families, who desperately want the drugs, fall prey to the ads.


The police have asked the population not to attempt to buy the drugs for the drugs related to Covid-19 from private, unreliable and unscrupulous sources.

In Telangana, patients and their families should contact the director of medical education [email protected] to procure the drugs.
