In olx i saw an offer for iphone se in 7500 i bargained and managed for 4000. He said to send token amount of 500 we paid him through online banking. Then he asked for half the amount of 1500, instead we paid 2000. Then he said to talk to military courier department head and the man said to deposit 7000 as a security deposit as the seller aka srikanth who claimed to be a military man has hold the parcel and this amount would be 100% refundable. After this transaction the courier man again asked for 5150 as the parcel was stuck for more than 72 hours so this would be charged and refunded and i told srikanth to arrange money as we ran out of it, but still we were able to arrange 3000 and he said to pay the rest. After this the military courier service man asked to deposit more 5100 as he claimed that there have been 2 different transactions so the computer didn't accept and create otp. After this heavy transactions, he said that more of 2777 was required to verify the otp. This led us to doubt, as the otp which was send in my phone was olx login otp which is an alternative to the password. Then we searched in the google about the military courier service and saw the cases of fraud shared by people in online platform and i saw the same aadhar card and story of srikanth. Irrespective of the fact, i transferred him the asked amount, 2777 because they told that the phone will be delivered tomorrow i. E 26 april 2019 as we thought that if they switched off their phone
And the police would not be able to trace him and we have proof of transaction and call. We also have his aadhar card and ptm bank details.

The total amount he fraud of is 21, 927 is 8 different transactions. If you could help me, i would be very grateful towards you as the man has not only fooled me but many in the name of "military man's words and honesty"

In thanking you, i remain,

Yours sincerely,
Akash devnath
