Manjeet singh agreed to sell me 6 months used redmi note 5 pro for 6000. He said that he is on duty in the army camp in colaba and hence he cannot hand deliver me the mobile. He said that he will send a courier via army post office in colaba. He sent us receipt of the parcel and also his aadhar card and army canteen card and his photos. He asked to send 50% advance in the paytm number of vikas patel who claimed to be the officer at the army post office. We sent 3000 and he told that the parcel will reach next day morning at my house in kharghar, navi mumbai.
The next day, early morning i get a call from jai kishan, who told me that he was the courier boy who is in vicinity and demanded balance payment to be made immediately or else the parcel would return and the procedure could take minimum 45 days for refund or cancellation. I paid balance 3000 to same number. Later, the courier boy calls me saying that i need to pay rs. 5100 + rs. 50 in two transactions. Rs. 50 will be deducted as gst and rest 5100 will be refunded by him in cash along with the parcel. I refused to do so but he said that he wants to deliver other goods to nashik and will leave if i fail to pay the amount within 10-15 minutes. I felt helpless and hence paid those too.
Post that, he said that he left for nashik and that my parcel and money will go to pending and the procedure will take 45 days after which i have to again pay rs 5150 to claim or cancel the parcel.
All these incidents occured on jan 12, 2018 and jan 13, 2018.
I went to the army camp and its post office in colaba but could not trace any of the three people. They are answering the calls sometimes but without any satisfactory answer. The total amount of the fraud is rs. 11, 150. It is a big some of money for me and i would request help and coordination from the concerned authorities to claim refund or atleast some serious action against these fraudsters.
Now, that i serched online, there numerous cases of almost identical fraud some, even containing the name of three people i mentioned above. I attached all related proofs and following are there contact numbers -
Manjeet singh - [protected]
Vikas patel - [protected]
Jai kishan - [protected].
