Man downloads app to cancel online order, loses Rs 70,000 in Bengaluru | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A 37-year-old private company employee recently lost Rs 70,000 to online fraudsters after he asked a delivery boy to cancel his order for a headphone set over a payment dispute.
Raman (name changed) from Koramangala came across an advertisement about sale of headphones on social media. He placed an order and paid Rs 1,600 digitally. “A delivery boy identifying himself as Raj visited my house. He asked me to pay the amount but I told him I had already paid online. I showed him a screenshot of the payment but he was not convinced. So I asked him to cancel the order. Raj called another person who identified himself as Sandeep to inform him about my decision. Sandeep asked me to download an app. I did so and provided information, including my bank account details. Soon after the delivery boy left, I realised Rs 70,000 had been deducted from my account,” Raman said.
Raman approached Central CEN Crime police on Monday to lodge the complaint.
