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.
