Cyber thugs did a fraud of Rs 10 lakh from a woman living in Lucknow. The victim lodged a complaint in the cyber cell and told that she was cheated by posing as the Mumbai Police. According to the information, Vibha Yadav, who lives in the Ram Manohar Lohia Sansthan premises of Police Station Vibhuti Khand, received a call from an unknown number a few days back. Amit Dada’s name was appearing on the Truecaller. On picking up the phone, the person told that a parcel has been sent from Mumbai to Taiwan using your Aadhaar number and police will come to your house for legal action on it. The caller had told his name as Naresh Gupta and an employee working in Mumbai Police.
During this, the victim asked him for the FIR copy of the case. The victim got scared seeing her name in the FIR copy. After this, when the victim called on the same number, a person named Prakash Kumar Guddu picked up the phone. He also told that your identity card has been used illegally.
During this, he talked about checking the account and also said that 10 lakhs will have to be given and this amount will be returned. Panicking, the victim transferred Rs 10 lakh to the account number given by the fraudster. The thug also told that if he told this to anyone, he would not be able to help.
After a few days, when the money did not come in her account, she got suspicious and the victim lodged a report in the cyber cell. According to Cyber ACP Alpana Ghosh, a fraud has happened with a woman who transferred Rs 10 lakh and she was told that her name is in the FIR. After this, he did this work out of fear. The account number is being investigated after taking a report on this entire matter. Efforts are being made to nab the accused by putting numbers on the surveillance cameras.
