Woman cheated of Rs 1.19 lakh

A woman was cheated by the fraudsters over the phone in the city.

In a case at the Magadi Road Police station, the scamsters used the names of BMW Automobiles of UK, Reserve Bank of India and cheated Saraswathi, a private firm employee, of Rs 1.19 lakh.

Saraswathi received an email on October 20 saying she had won an online lottery prize worth of 75,000 British pounds. Two days later, a person asked her to pay him. She credited Rs 22,500 to his ICICI bank account as per his request.

A day later, Sangeetha Kumari, pretending to be the commissioner of RBI, asked Saraswathi to pay Rs 97,000 as tax. Saraswathi credited the sum to Sangeetha’s account.

But on the fourth day, Saraswathi again received a call from UK and was asked to pay Rs 2.91 lakh as tax money. Saraswathi grew suspicious and refused. The caller threatened her saying she will not get back the money she had paid earlier.

Saraswathi went to the RBI at Nrupathunga Road, where officials confirmed there was no RBI connection.
