A labour from Goosh area of kupwara in north kashmir has lost over Rs 23 lakh to a ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ scam over a period of 1 month after his son deposited the money into multiple bank accounts handled by fraudsters.

It was all for Rs 1.5 crore and Mercedes car, which the fraudsters claimed Abdul Majeed son had won in a lucky draw.

On december 2018, Majeeds son who is a student by profession received a call from one vijay kumar, who claimed that he had won Rs 1.5 crore and Mercedes car in a lucky draw and asked for his account details to deposit the amount.

Majeeds son initially ignored the call, but the fraudster called him again the next day and insisted that he give his bank details immediately for the transaction to happen.

His son believed the caller and sent his bank details without a clue as to what awaits him.

He said fraudster asking him to deposit Rs 24,000 as transaction charge.

“The call seemed genuine and Rs 24,000 did not seem a big deal as I was getting Rs 1.5 crore and Mercedes car I deposited the money and sent the receipt to the person who called me on whatsApp.

Later, he received another call and this time, the fraudster convinced Majeeds son to cough up Rs 35,000 towards TDS. And asks him not to share these details to anyone.

This, however, did not stop until Majeeds son deposited Rs 23 lakhs into many accounts of SBI in different states.

“The fraudsters did not leave a reason for to me to doubt the authenticity of the lucky draw.

I have sold my 05 kanals of land and a house Now I don’t even have enough money to buy poison and commit suicide,” Majeed said.

Majeeds son , who was happy with the winning amount and was dreaming of a better tomorrow, received a jolt when he got a call from Frudester and asked him to deposit the more money.

When kashmir crown editor in chief shahid imran contacts the Frudester on whatsApp call after hurling choicest abuses the fraudsters dropped the call.

Kashmir crown also requests our viewers/followers dont pay heed towards these fake calls.
