Man poses as prospective groom, cons Bengaluru woman of Rs 10 lakh | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A 31-year-old Bengaluru woman was cheated of Rs 10 lakh by a man she met on matrimonial site recently.
Tara (name changed) from Raghavendra Layout, south Bengaluru, and employee with a private firm, told South CEN crime police on Monday that she had uploaded her profile on a matrimonial site in January to find a life partner and received response from a man identifying himself as Prem Basu. Basu evinced interest in marrying Tara.
“Basu claimed that he was working in London and would soon return to India. I later received a call from an unidentified person, who informed me that Basu had come to Delhi without Covid-19 negative report and foreign currency worth Rs 2 crore without any document and had been detained. The caller asked me to pay the money in the name of various fees to release Basu. I followed the instructions and transferred Rs 10,13,500 to them in multiple transactions,” she said. Tara learnt that she had been cheated as Basu’s number remained switched off later.
