Kandivli woman loses 1.2L in email scam

1 Held In Indore

Mumbai: A 32-year-old man from Indore in Madhya Pradesh has been arrested for allegedly duping a student in Kandivli (E) of Rs 1.2 lakh through an email lottery scam. The police are now looking for three to four more persons in the case. 

    In February, the 26-year-old Kandivli resident received an email from one Arick Donald, saying she had won a lottery of Rs 5 crore and asking her to provide her personal details such as cellphone number, bank account number and address. The victim replied to the email and sent her personal details. 
    "On February 16, Donald told her he was in Delhi with her prize money. He said he had 
been detained at the airport for non-payment of Customs duty and asked her to deposit Rs 24,500 in a bank account," said an officer from the cyber cell of the Mumbai police. 
    The victim deposited the money, following which Donald 
called her and told her to pay a conversion charge of Rs 93,000 as the prize money was in dollars. He told her to deposit the cash in an account in a multinational bank in Lokhandwala. 
    Two days after the victim deposited the amount, she received a letter from Donald. The letter, which carried an RBI logo, stated that she must pay Rs 3.9 lakh to the Indian's government's revenue and finance department. The victim then lodged a complaint. "We traced one of the bank accounts to Raj Kumar Tagela in Indore and arrested him," said the officer.
