NASHIK: Some miscreants have duped a Nashikite of Rs.16.5 lakh by luring him in for a well-paid job. The fraudsters asked the victim to pay money online for the job and looted him. The victim, Anand Kumar Shamsundar Maralkar (resident of Kathegali, Dwarka), has lodged a complaint with the Nashik’s Cyber Police Station, and a case has been registered under the Section 66C of IT Act, 2000.
Maralkar was looking for job placement on social media for a while, and he started receiving calls from the mobile and landline number of a company. He entrusted the company as they had a registered mail Id.
