A resident of Mumbai lost Rs 6 lakh to a fraudster who asked him to share his OTP for the online transactions under the pretext of selling him an SUV. The accused who was posing as a CRPF personnel had posted an advertisement on a popular portal to sell an SUV. When the victim contacted the accused, the latter sent him his photographs in uniform and an "identity card" to gain his trust. The fraudster then asked the victim to send Rs 100 to his Paytm account. After some time he called up the victim and asked him to share the OTP for the transaction saying that there was some mistake in the transfer of money. As soon as OTP was shared Rs 6 lakh was debited from his bank account.
