[Resolved]  Indian Army — Fraud of Rs 6000 on paytm by army personal

On 5.6.2022 I put an advertisement of my 45 L LG refrigerator on OLX for sale. A person named Anil Kumar claiming himself as an army personnel called me as he was interested to purchase it. He said he can buy it from his Army card. He asked me to make his payment via paytm.
He called me and asked me to be on call while he was making his payment and send me first a link stating " indian army payment received... 5rs credited to your paytm account" he told me that I have to click on pay first so that I will get a collective amount of Rs 10 in my account. He also send me his Army card to gain my trust. I did the same and got Rs 10 (5 rs 5 mine nd 5 rs from his side) UPI ID: [protected] after that he send text stating "indian army payment... 6000 rs credited to your paytm account" then I got two links stating " next payment received... 3000 rs credited to your paytm account" when I clicked 3000 rs deducted from my account UPI[protected]@paytm UPI reference no.[protected] but I did not receive any amount as discussed then he told me to click on another link then a total of 12000 rs will be received into my account (6000 that I have paid and 6000 that they have to pay for the fridge), having trust in Indian Army I clicked on the link again UPI Reference no.[protected] but again did not get any amount. After this they were forcing me to click on a link on 6000 rs but then i did not. Then they start to
threaten me if I did not give the security amount of 6000 rs then they will shw me their power and will be a threat to my career. The Personnel Anil Kumar has called me 2-3 times to convince me to make the payment and refuse to refund the amount that I have already paid. I am attaching his Photo and photo of his Army card (canteen card).
