Indian Army — victim of mobile phone fraud by vikas patel
Ppcmishra123 on Aug 24, 2018
I saw an ad on olx and thought of buying a phone. A person who told his name as vikas patel (Phone - [protected]) told him as an army officer and asked me to pay the money via paytm to number [protected] so that he can get the phone released from office. To prove his identity - he sent me his csd canteen identity card, and his other pics (Attached). Considering the authenticity, i transferred him initial 5000/- via paytm. Post this - he asked me to transfer another remaining 12000/- so that he can get the phone and papers released. Unfortunately - i transferred him the remaining amount. On questioning about the phone - he asked me to transfer further 3020/- more so that he can deliver me the phone in hand. By this time, i realized that i am being fooled by this guy and i told him that i am going to file a complaint against him. Instead of switching off his phone, he said to me that you dont know power of army and me and i (Vikas) will file a case on me for fraud, he started threatning me and started talking in a rash way.
I would request you guys not to transfer money unless you see the product, no matter how trusted the other party is. Just sharing my plight so others dont suffer : (
I would request this matter to be urgently looked as i am seeing multiple complaints for fraud done under the name of indian army and this guy is fooling people.
