Mumbai Resident Duped of ₹90,000 While Seeking Loan for Daughter’s Education

Online scammers allegedly defrauded a 56-year-old Navi Mumbai man who was looking for a loan for his daughter’s education, out of ₹90,000. According to PTI, the man, who works for a logistics company, claimed to have seen a Facebook post about instant loans that could be obtained in as little as two hours.

The report states that on November 8, the complainant submitted an online loan application to the relevant finance company. He got a call within minutes, and the person offered him a loan.

An agency was informed by a police official that the caller demanded that the complainant pay ₹90,000 in insurance charges, GST, RBI charges, NOC charges, and two advance instalments.

But the complainant did not receive the loan amount and was instead asked to make additional payments. The man realised he was cheated and filed a complaint. An offence under section 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act was registered against unidentified persons at Kalamboli police station on Saturday, the PTI report added.
