Contacting the website, Anjali was provided a telephone number for providing further details.

Calling on that number, Anjali was greeted by an executive who identified himself as Rajesh Kumar who sought through Whatsapp from her a copy of her marksheet, Aadhar Card, PAN card, bank account details for pursuing her application. The caller also made her deposit Rs 31200 on various pretext of fulfilling various loan formalities.

While, Anjali deposited all the fees she was asked for, the promised loan was not provided to her. Instead, the caller asked her to despot further Rs 250000. This new demand made Anjali suspicious and she sought back her money saying she does not need the loan anymore. This demand of Anjali resulted in the caller switching off his telephone number and simply went out of contact. Police, meanwhile, have registered an offence under Section 420 IPC against the caller identified as Rajesh Kumar and is now investigating the matter further.
