Online con artists successfully deceived a young person and a female in two different incidences that were reported in Noida and Greater Noida, causing them to suffer large financial losses.
Rental Scam in Noida
Gaurav Joshi, a Dehradun native who had moved to Noida for work, was the victim of rental fraud. He called a real estate broking professional named Vikas Gupta, whose number he had obtained online, in order to look for an apartment. Gupta promised Joshi a flat to rent for ₹16,500 per month and asked for money upfront. The scammer wired ₹5 to Joshi’s bank account along with a return coupon in an effort to win the victim’s trust. Joshi scanned the coupon because he had faith in Gupta, which resulted in a startling debit from his account of ₹1.15 lakh. The con artists stole from him a total of ₹1.50 lakh. Joshi reported the incident to the police right away, and they opened a case in Sector 113, Noida.
Printer Sale Fraud in Greater Noida
Jyoti, a girl, was attempting to sell her printer via an internet advertisement in a similar online fraud. The con artist, who gave his name as Ankur, showed interest in buying the printer. He originally sent ₹5 to Jyoti’s electronic wallet before promising to deposit the amount online. Ankur then provided her with a QR code, promising that after scanning it, the remaining amount would be made. Jyoti trusted him, so she scanned the QR code, only to discover that ₹83,893 had been taken out of her bank account. When she became aware of the scam, she immediately alerted the police, who in Surajpur, Greater Noida, registered the case.
