Fraud caller cheats man of Rs. 1.72 lakh

July 31, 2017

Mysuru: A man from city, who had deposited money to the account of the Rajasthan-based finance company, which had promised him to provide loan, has been cheated after depositing a total of Rs. 1.72 lakh to the account of the finance company. The man, who was cheated, has been identified as Yogesh Gowda, a resident of Vijayanagar here.

It is reported that Yogesh received a call a few months ago from one Srikanth Sharma, Managing Director of Rajasthan-based Bosco Finance, who told Yogesh that he would be provided loan if he becomes a member of the finance company by depositing Rs. 3,000 to the account, following which Yogesh deposited the said amount.

A few days later, Yogesh receives calls from the company’s Finance Manager Suresh Gupta, Manager Anil Sharma and staff of the finance company Priya Sharma, asking Yogesh to deposit more money into their account for sanctioning the loan.

Yogesh then deposited Rs. 1.72 lakh to the account of the finance company through SBI and Cash Deposit Machine on Sayyaji Rao Road. As he did not receive any calls from the finance company, Yogesh called the number, which he had received, but was not getting connected.

Sensing something fishy about the company, Yogesh has lodged a complaint at Devaraja Police Station in  this regard.
