Nagpur: A young man was duped to the tune of Rs 7.70 lakh by a ‘Hungary’ based trading company. Most probably the company is fictitious one operated by Indian tricksters.
The victim, Nishant Pandurang Jangre (32), resident of Plot No. 42, Adhyapak Nagar, Manewada Road, told Hudkeshwar police that he was scanning Google for products search for business purpose. During the search, he noticed details of a Hungary company and came to know that the company deals in used cooking oil. He thus contacted the ‘authorised official’ of the Hanugarian company named Gabbar Jabor on phone 32465777974 and showed his readiness for purchasing the used cooking oil. Thereafter, the accused Gabbar Jabor sent agreement documents and asked Nishant to sign them.
The accused also told Nishant to deposit the agreed money in a Hungary-based bank account. But since no money could be deposited in the Hungarian bank, the accused told Nishant to deposit Rs 7.70 lakh in Delhi-based State Bank of Mysore account 64195303864 in the name of Lal Thagoon. Later, the accused sent product documents to Nishant which turned out to be bogus ones. Nishant soon realised that he has been cheated and demanded his money back from the accused Gabbar Jabor. The accused flatly refused to do so. Hence Nishant lodged a complaint with Director General of Foreign Trade but got no response. Finally, he registered a case with Hudkeshwar police in this connection. The cheating took place between June 2016 and August 2016.
Hudkeshwar PSI Dharmejwar has registered an offence under Section 420 of the IPC and searching for the accused.
