    Complaint was filed in the East CEN Crime police station

    The victim was contacted by the scamster on December 27th on Telegram

    She was asked to provide positive hotel reviews

 A 37-year-old Principal residing in HAL 3rd stage lost Rs 57,42,000 due to a desire to earn Rs 100. A complaint was filed with regard to this in the CEN (Cyber, Economic Offences and Narcotics) police station in the East division of Bengaluru. The victim was contacted by the scamster on December 27th on Telegram. A complaint was filed with regard to this incident on January 4th 2024.

Those assuming that submitting reviews online is an easy means to earn money need to exercise caution. Miscreants extort money in a phased manner. A message on Telegram or WhatsApp promising prospective victims of an opportunity to earn Rs 100 is first sent. This is the first step in the process of cheating. Initially the victims are asked to provide positive hotel reviews and to like videos on Instagram. Rupees 150-200 are then debited to their account as bait. They are then promised of being added into a group. That is where their true intentions come to the forefront. They would lure the victims into investing money to realise substantial returns. The victims would be directed into investing a sum of Rs 5000 to Rs 10,000 in the initial stage. 

In this case however, the woman blindly placed her trust on the scamster and deposited the amount in installments to various accounts only to never hear from the scamster.
