This is to highlight the possible attempt of online fraud and confirm that i have already submitted the form in below link but did not receive any acknowledgement.
http://cybercrimecomplaints.com

Details of fraud and attachments;

I had put an advertisement on quikr to sell my sofa set to which i received an email from showing interest in buying it from me. She says she is in uk for a month and has sent a package with airway bill of lufthansa cargo with awb# [protected]. As per her the package contains icici khalsa college branch amritsar cheque#044637 of account#[protected] of rs 18, 500/- out of this rs 10, 000/- is an advance payment for the sofa sale deal and remaining rs 8, 500/- which she wants me to pay in cash for the custom clearance duty in india airport.
However, i felt this is fraud when she mentioned on her email that i have to pay inr 8500/- to lufthansa cargo department to clear the package. I have received call on 15feb 2017 morning at 10:07am from mobile number [protected] which seems to show ashish negi name in true caller, however the person with african accent claims that he is calling from new delhi international airport and shared bank account details for me to make online payment to clear package.
He shared the account details as below;
A/c name: lufthansa airline service. A/c no:[protected]. Ifscode: rbin00061872. Reserve bank of india. Amount to pay: 8500 rupees
I did not made any payment, and think this is an online fraud. Hence am reporting for you to take appropriate proactive action to put these fraudsters behind bars.

Enclosed are 3 documents: id card of manpreet, airway bill and icici cheque

I also received email from this person, here is a part of the body:
"I will like to write shortly about me through mail. I am Mrs Manpreet Kaur Arora and I come from a middle-class background, I was born on 3rd January 1967. I grown up in India but now I'm presently in United Kingdom on a business trade like i said. I will be coming back to India in the next 4 weeks but before that i want to make sure that i purchase the Bed from you. I know this is Used Bed but i count it as waste of money in going for New Bed even i purchase my Bed as Used since 7 years but still like new up till date, that is why i want this Bed very urgent before someone else purchase it from you."
I too got a same email for my bed and felt something is not right as they write very long email. Here is what i got.

I must confess am comfortable with the price and whatever you told about the Bed is okay by me and i have made up my mind in buying. I'm ready to pay for the Bed but before that i need to discuss with a logistics company that will handle the pick up from your location. Whatever we discuss about the pick up, i will come back to you so i can make the payment for the Bed and you have to send me the address for the pick up and the time.
I have been a victim of this scam as well, and have lodged an FIR at a police station in Bangalore. If anyone above comes to know about any action taken up in this case, please update this thread.

I really thank full to Kash-ish,

I am talking with her for last 2 days. and I found it awkward, so I just copy and paste email ID in google, and I found this first post.

I want to sell my laptop and she is telling same that she is in UK for business trip and want to ship this to Canada to his son.

and she is going to send me cheque by today.

But I just give her shock. :)

Thanks again.
Thanks all for putting this online. Today I also found the mail suspicious after two replies. I checked that Quickr creating username same as email id and this person is targeting by putting just @gmail.com

Hello,

How are you doing today? I guess you are fine.

It is pleasant to read from you once again. I'm satisfy with all the information you send to me and i will like to buy the Treadmill from you.

Like i said in my previous massage that I'm Presently in UK on a business trade that is why is very difficult for me to communicate through phone because my phone is presently switch off.

I'm buying this Treadmill to my other sitting rooms because i was expecting a friend from other country that is why i need this Treadmill very urgent.

I must confess am comfortable with the price and whatever you told about the Treadmill is okay by me and i have made up my mind in buying this even before my arrival in India. I'm ready to pay for the Treadmill but before that i will like to inform you that i will be making the payment once i discuss with a logistics company that will handle the pick up from your location. Whatever we discuss about the pick up, i will come back to you so i can make the payment for the Treadmill and you have to send me the address for the pick up and the time.

Moreover is there anything else you need to tell me about the Treadmill which we have not discuss in this email earlier. Also, I will like to know in which floor you are living so i can know if the pick up can be easily be done without damage.

Please, let me know if you can take off the advert from the site as i will be paying for the Treadmill once i get your feedback.

Waiting to read from you soonest.

Best Regards
Manpreet Kaur Arora
I have also got mail from Manpreet two days back for my sofa in Quikr. I have given my detail by now and came across these threads. I think I should avoid the call from her.
I to got same mail.
PriyankaAP's reply, Sep 28, 2017
Hi again,

Thanks for the quick reply. I am very happy the way we've communicated, I am okay with you and i want you to know that i feel much comfortable paying ahead for the Sofa now because i have discuss with the FedEx Courier company and they are ready to handle the pick up from your end after the payment of the Sofa have been made directly to you because i have explain to them that I'm not presently in India and i want them to deliver the Sofa to my house even without my present. So they have agreed with all my proposal and they will come for the pick up once we have finally finalize the deal with each other.

I was told once the deal is finalize I should go ahead and send the address and the time of pick up.

i will be making payment to secure the Sofa and the mode of payment will be Cheque and i will make sure the cheque gets to you within 2-3days once i got the information. The cheque is from my (HDFC BANK). Online transfer won't be possible because i always submit each copy of my cheque transaction to my account officer in case if there is any fraud he can be able to trace from the account where the cheque was submitted. I have inform my bank about this while they have agreed to make sure the amount is credited into your account within 1-2 days. So I will request you to get back to me with the following information to get the payment to you. Your full name as it will appear on the payment, your work place address to ensure delivery in your hands through regular mails or a courier service, your phone number on the package to avoid package missing in transit. I will prefer to send to your work address because you will always be available at work from morning till evening but if home address it will be sitting in your mail and no one will be at home to receive the package.And if you don't receive package at your office address then I guess your home address will be good for the delivery right ? But to avoid any delay of you receiving at home then I guess any address will be fine as long as you will be able to receive it.

1...Your full name as it will appear on the Cheque,
2...Your full address to ensure delivery of the Cheque.
3...Your phone number on the package to avoid package missing in transit.

Kindly get back to me with this requested address contact information so that we can proceed asap bye for now.. I guess i'll feel more comfortable paying ahead now, I just don't want to loose the Sofa. Please let me know if the advert is taking off from the site.

Waiting for your urgent response.

Best Regards
Mrs Manpreet Kaur Arora
A lady(pretended to be [protected]@hotmail.com) mailed me personally and asked me to send over my mailing details so that she can send over cheque as I posted something to sell out on quikr. I found it bit unusal and search over for her mail id and figured out it is a scam. Good that I only gave office address. Though she had got my phone number/email from quikr listing.

Hello All,

I also received the fraud mail through [protected]@hotmail.com regarding the purchase of laptop. I knew that the lady who contacted me was a fraud so to get more information about them I tried to get in touch with these scammers through mail ID and phone. Here's the last mail which I received :

Hello,

This is Mrs Manpreet Kaur Arora once again. This is to confirm to you that i have finally send the cheque to you so that you can be sure how serious I'm ready to purchase the Laptop. The Airline will arrive in India tomorrow morning by 8:45AM, while they will call you for the delivery of the package to your door once the airline arrive.

Please bear with me that the affiliated flight, Lufthansa Airline has no available flight from London (UK) to your own city, so the flight that is bringing the package will arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, Once the package is clear from New Delhi custom it will be deliver to you in your City through Airline delivery Agent, So you have to make sure you are available at home to received the package once you got a call from the delivery local Agent because you have to sign before they release the package to you.

The total amount on the cheque is 18, 500 Rupees. 10, 000 Rupees for your purchase amount and the rest 8, 500 Rupees will be transfer to the Airline delivery Agent. because the Airline official have charges 70 Pounds extra which is 8, 500 Rupees. I was told this amount will be paid at India Airport once they arrive by tomorrow morning being Securities Transaction Tax (STT) so they can register the package since is first class shipping send from abroad before they can come to deliver the package at your door step. But still the Airline is not 100% sure if they will request or not since is just an envelop but in case they request, that is why I have added the 8, 500 Rupees extra on the cheque so you can transfer to the Airline delivery agent tomorrow for the clearance and registration of the package from the custom at Delhi to avoid any forms of delay. Once the amount is credited into your account then you can deduct the amount you've transfer for the custom fee.

Once you received the package by tomorrow, please make sure you deposit to your account as earlier as possible so the money can be credited into your account before the pick up date by the FedEx. Also remember to send a mail to me once the amount is credited into your account so i can send to the FedEx Courier that is payment is done before they can come for the pick up.

I hereby attached you the Airway-Bill and the scan copy of the Cheque in the mail.

Thanks for your Co-operation.

Waiting for your urgent response once you have finally received the Cheque.

Best Regards
Manpreet Kaur Arora

Note: Please ensure that the copy of my cheque is keep as a confidential because this is my company account where i kept all my fund. I send to you because of trust i have for you that is the reason i make the cheque payee A/c so another person can't misuse my company cheque.

Matt Williams called me claiming that he was Airline delivery agent and asked me to deposit Rs 8500/- in their account. Here's the phone number and details which he sent me:

Even i got the same kind of mails word to word LOL. Thanx for this post and pat on back I checked this
Hi ALL
Don't buy any computer related materials from this Person AD no[protected]. He is really fraud and don't attend any phone calls coming from him, he have cheated Rs.25000 he have mentioned in quikr ad Star Computer bangalore his phone no [protected] and name is syed. I request to you all please beware with him
Hi All,

This Syed (Star Computer Bangalore his phone no [protected]. He is such a rascal... bloody ### has also cheated me. He is real fraud and this has happened to me on Oct 23rd, 2017 when I pay him for a monitor for Rs 2500 and he just deliver a greeting card instead of a monitor. So from that time, I found that he is cheating by this number [protected] and not picking up my calls. I had made the payment through PAYTM that's my biggest mistake as I was not aware of such kinds of fraud.

I wish I could have verified his identity before buying anything from such a fraud. Don't ever pay anyone if they are asking for outside payment. Beware!!!

I got similar communication for my Quikr ad but I could clearly smell the weird nuisance when this guy was willing to send the cheque in advance and then asked me to provide the full name and address for sending the cheque and schedule a pickup by Fedex next.
