Bengaluru, Dec 3: The Yelahanka police have arrested Syed Yunus, Syed Arbaaz, Mohammed Kaliullah and Ibrahim Karnool on charges of defrauding Rs 40 crore from more than 305 online jobs aspirants throughout Karnataka state.
Police have seized four mobile phone handsets, two passbooks, six debit cards, sim cards, biometric equipment and company seal.
According to the details, the accused used to send links to mobile phones to job aspirants on the pretext of earning thousands of rupees by doing online job. If the receiver pressed the link he or she used to get messages on Whatsapp and Telegram. The accused used to ask the receiver to like the Facebook posts and links of Instagram which they used to send.
Once it was done, the accused used to send Rs 150 to 500 to the bank account of the receiver.
In the next phase the accused were saying that the receiver had been selected for the second phase and asked them to send Rs 5000 to 10000 as investment. After that they used to give some tasks for the victims and provide a duplicate receipt saying that Rs 50000 had been credited to their bank accounts.
Later, the accused used to ask the victims to invest more money to get more tasks and double the amount. Then they would send a message saying that the victim’s account will be credited with Rs 5 lac if the person sends Rs 50,000. Again the accused would say that Rs 10 lac had been credited to the account. Then they used to say that there was some technical glitch and asked the victims to put in more money. Many people used to stop after losing Rs 50,000 and did not file any complaint.
Yelahanka CEN police are probing further.
