Bengaluru: Man asked to pay Rs 1 lakh insurance premium, duped | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A 52-year-old man has filed a police complaint against a miscreant for duping him of Rs 1 lakh on the pretext of accepting insurance premium that was due.
Vijayabhaskar Reddy of K Narayanapura said a person called Ruhi, who claimed to be a staffer of the private firm from which he had purchased a life insurance policy, called him and asked him to pay a premium of over Rs 1 lakh. Reddy had bought the policy in 2013 and paid two instalments of Rs 1,02,144 each. For personal reason, he had stopped paying the premium. “Reddy wanted to continue the policy and did not cancel it,” said police.
On January 18, Reddy received the call from Ruhi. She told him: “Pay one more instalment and you can cancel the insurance and get back your entire money.” Reddy transferred the money to a bank account number shared by Ruhi. “I was shocked to learn that they hadn’t received the payment,” Reddy said. Police have issued a notice to the insurance firm and the bank which had Ruhi’s account.
