I got trapped into cyber crime. Few days ago I had posted add to sell my furniture in OLX and Quikr. I got an email from one lady. She stays in UK and want to buy double bed. With conversation through email she look very professional to me. i agreed to sell her. But she didn't want to go through Quikr want to send her own movers & packers.
After final decision happened between us that she will send HDFC bank cheque through courier. I asked her to transfer online but she refused but i was okay as I just need to deposit the cheque in the bank and once money will transfer to my account she will send movers and packers for pickup.
Thursday night she sent an email to me with the Airway bill and cheque. In that she mentioned you need to pay Rs. 8500 for custom clearance and they will assign I agent whom you need to transfer the amount in his account. As she mentioned in her email that the cheque is of additional Rs. 8500 i have paid that. later I got an email from the Agent personal Id and discussion happened, he demanded for Rs. 16, 800. He said it's security deposit and then Rs.18000 for FedEx guys demanding for Security to deliver the cheque. He has shared his identity with me Lufthansa Airline Employee and letter from Federal ministry office.
I got into the trap and paid almost Rs. 34, 500. Through different modes along with my PAN no. & Aadhar card No.
1. Through Citi bank : Rs 8500 + Rs. 16, 800
2. Through PayTm : 18000
Here are the details and contact person :
Lady who contact me : [protected]@hotmail.com
Agent Email ID: [protected]@yahoo.com
Agent Ph. No: +91-[protected]
Note: Now they are using my adhar card and using it for other. People reach out to me.
