Quikr — scamster responded to email and defrauded
MaMadhuparna Datta on Mar 8, 2018
This is to highlight the possible attempt of online fraud.
Details of fraud and attachments;
I had advertised my flat on quickr to be rented out. A lady named manpreet arora (Manpreet_arora03@hotmail.com) contacted on that ad and said that she would like to take it up on rent. She said she was in uk and would be coming to india next month. That she was sending a consignment that would contain the cheque and also a load of kitchen stuff for the house. She mentioned that the customs would ask for rs 8500 for clearance hence she has added that on the cheque. My poor father actually also transferred the money to this a/c:
A/c name: surojit deb. A/c no: [protected]. Ifsc code: cbin0282441. Bank name: central bank of india. Branch: patuapara. Amount to transfer: 8500 rupees
Kindly send the transfer copy of 8500 inr/ur id proof copy to this email so the clearance can be done from the custom (Mattwilliam01@yahoo.co. Uk)
And then received a mail saying that a security bnond of 16800 was required for clearance. That is when we became suspicious and an online check revealed that this is a known sscamster a/c. How can quickr be allowing this respondent to keep on preying on unsuspecting advertisers!
