A woman from Bengaluru was looking to buy iPad online and she came across an advertisement on Quikr. She liked the product and contacted the advertiser. They struck a deal for Rs 17,000 and the seller asked her to transfer half the amount. The seller promised that he would courier the product once the money was transferred. The fraudster had messaged on Whatsapp from a foreign number. When the woman asked why he had listed Bengaluru as his location while he is using foreign number, he said that his office was in Mumbai. After the woman paid Rs 8,500 he again started asking her to send Rs 10,000. Later, she got to know she was duped.
