[Resolved] Chevrolet — Money Lost in Chevrolet Promotion
Iam Zaheer Hussain(Mobile No: [protected], Email: [protected]@yahoo.com). I received an sms on 10.5.2013 that I have won 500,000GBP and a Chevrolet car on my mobile number [protected] in Chevrolet Promotion and to claim the prize, I have to send my name, address, age, occupation to [protected]@live.com. We sent the same on 11.5.2013. Then they asked for personal details on 18.5.2013 in an attachment, and I filled and sent the same on the same day. They approved the Gift amount and they sent a Guy named David West(Mobile No:[protected], Email: [protected]@yahoo.com) to India. They("CHEVROLET PROMOTION" [protected]@london.com) sent his ID card, Passport and Parcel of cheque scanned copies to my Email Id([protected]@yahoo.com). He said that the is at New Delhi United Nizam Office on 21.5.2013, he asked to pay Rs.24500 as Indian custom clearance and I paid the same to State Bank (IFSC:SBIN0000072) account of APHOUITO SUMI A/C No.[protected]. Then he sent Indian Customs Clearance certificate as a proof of payment of Rs.24500. Then around 1 PM he asked to pay 75,000 for Anti-Terrorist certificate. I paid the same at 3 PM. to 2 accounts, Rs.50000 to HDFC(IFSC:HDFC0000614) RIYA ZIMIK(PAN No.ABCPZ5601R) (A/C No.[protected] and Rs.25000 to HDFC(IFSC:HDFC0000614) account of AMIDUL HUSSAIN LASKAR(PAN No.AFMPL7003F) (A/C No.[protected]). Then he sent Anti Terrorist certificate to my Email ID. Then he asked us to pay Rs.175000 as an amount needed for exchange of amount from GBP to INR. My family is a middle class family and I paid Rs.99500 amount with great struggle. I told him that Iam unable to pay such a huge amount of money(1.75Lakhs). Then he said that if I did not pay the amount he will return back to London. I asked for refund of amount previously paid, he said that the amount was paid to the company for the issue of the certificates and so that cannot be refunded. Please help me out in this issue and to get back my amount. Please ban the company for cheating people saying that they have won a huge amount. Many TATA DOCOMO and AIRCEL mobile numbers receive such fraud sms and people pay the amount and get cheated. Please take action on the company and on DAVID WEST(Representative Officer in British Diplomatic Courier and Cargo service. ID Number: UKB[protected]D).They(Chevrolet Promotion) used to call from UK number:[protected] and urge me to pay the amount immediately.
