THANE: A 38-year-old man from Mumbra was cheated of Rs 97,000 by five persons who offered him a loan with zero per cent interest. The police said that in 2019, he had taken a loan from a financial company and had repaid the loan with the prescribed interest. It was recently, he got a call from a woman from the same finance company who identified herself as an executive and told him that considering his old financial record with the company and the credit score, he can avail the loan at zero percent interest. As he was in dire need of money, he fell prey to the sweet-talking accused. He said that he got calls wherein the accused told him different schemes but settled to take Rs 30 lakh loan with no interest. Another accused also a woman told him that he will have to avail a policy from them accordingly he paid the sum for the requisite. Again the accused told them that he can avail the subsidy on loan but for which he will have to pay more money. They sent him a link via email and told him to take the insurance policies and pay a different sum. Both the policies turned out to be genuine as the complainant verified it with the call centre numbers. Falling prey to the scamsters he paid the amount on different pretext to the accused and took three policies from the accused but did not give him any loan and later their mobile numbers were unreachable. He then realised that he had been duped and registered a case with the Mumbra police under various sections of cheating of the Indian penal code and relevant section of information and technology act. The police said that they are probing the case.
