A man from Visakhapatnam got in touch with a person on Facebook who pretended to be a young girl. After two years of friendship, the victim fell in love with the accused, who was actually a man. At some point of time the accused asked the victim for Rs 4 Lakh, saying her family was in deep financial trouble. Thinking this to be true, the victim transferred Rs 4 Lakh to the accused. After the victim transferred money, the conversations stopped. A few days later, the accused called the victim and said she had got married and moved to the United States with her husband. After some months she again contacted him and informed that her husband was torturing her. She also said that she wanted to return to India and get married to the victim. Believing this to be true, the victim deposited money to her bank account for the flight tickets. A few days after receiving the money, she again stopped speaking to him. Finally, he got to know that he has been duped by a man who posed as a girl.
