The miscreants involved in the scam offered Rs 3 crore to the girl in exchange for her kidney.
However, they made her transfer Rs 16 lakh as taxes and police verification costs.
Victim contacted accused on social media
According to the girl’s complaint, a man named Praveen Raj on social media told her she will receive an advance payment of 50 per cent before the operation.
Praveen assured the girl that the remaining amount would be disbursed upon the procedure completion.
How the girl was duped
Following this exchange, the miscreants opened an account with Citibank, Chennai, and transferred Rs 3 crore to it.
Upon this, the victim sent Rs 16 lakh as a verification charge and asked the cyber crooks to give her the advance money.
The accused then asked her to go to Delhi to claim the money.
When the victim arrived at the address the accused gave, she found it to be fake.
Father found out from ATM card transaction
On the other hand, the victim’s father said that he gave his daughter one of his ATM cards and found out about a cash withdrawal of Rs 16 lakh in November.
When he asked his daughter to return home, she fled from her hostel in Hyderabad.
Police, based on the complaint of the girl’s father, traced her to Jaggayyapeta in the NTR district of Andhra Pradesh at her friend’s house.
