The journalist, who recently left her assignment with a TV channel to pursue a teaching career as assistant professor at Harvard University, took to Twitter to reveal how she had been cheated.
“I have been the victim of a very serious phishing attack. I’m putting this statement out to set the record straight about what I’ve been through. I will not be addressing this issue any further on social media,” Razdan said on Twitter.

Razdan, who was supposed to take up her new assignment from September 2020, said that she did not receive any offer from the Harvard University and was instead a victim of very coordinated and sophisticated phising attack.
The senior scribe has filed a police complaint and has also written to the Harvard authorities.
