This is in reference to the fraud happened with me by two or probably by 3 individuals in the last week of Oct 2010.I was in very much need of money to pay of all my debts and more importantly for treatment of my mother,so that I could actually streamline the entire payment schedule through 1 bank.Since I had a home loan going on,it was difficult to obtain personal loan from any bank.That was when I went through 1 Mid-day advertisement displaying name of LOANWALA.COM carrying number 9167558291.When contacted on this number,the person on the other line introduced himself as Kiran and guaranteed to me that the sum of 11 lacs will be made available to me within 1 week.When asked how,he replied that he had good contacts with some banks and as a good gesture can help me in securing loan.During the entire conversation in 2-3 days, he also gave his alternate no. 9920476762.After that he told me to scan the copies of my salary slips,pan card,company id card,ration card and light bill to email id – email@example.com.
He told that after he receives the scan copies,he will forward all the documents and obtain the sanction letter of the loan after which I need to pay him of 5% of the loan amount as processing fees and comission.Since I was in urgent need of money for my mother’s treatment, I paid him the required money through one of his person Anant Gharat(9582586112) who came to collect the money near my office.I paid the guy Rs.40000 and gave him my 2 photos and for the balance 15000 I told him that I will pay the next day.The next 2 days he was giving some reasons that he cannot send the person to collect the money since it was monthend.He told to deposit the amount directly in the account of his friend Prashant Patil,Union Bank of India A/c no-378902010100772.After that I deposited the amount in that account.That was the last time I talked to him on phone because after that both his nos used to be engaged or ringing or out of service.The same story continued day on day when I decided to trace the original number.The number traced to Himanshu Patel(Borivli) where one of my person visited.The person was met and he said that he was also cheated by some Anil who collected such documents from him.But after that incident,both the cell nos are giving response of “out of service area” and “no. not reachable”.It clearly indicates that the person name Himanshu Patel is actively involved in this fraud because after that he himself has not been contactable at the address.
All of the above mentioned persons in one way or the other are involved in this fraud in which many of victims like me have been duped of their documents and money.I have lost my 55,000 rupees which could have helped me in this condition.But I fear that these guys can forge my documents and use them for illegal purpose to obtain loan or cards from other banks.I WANT TO MAKE A CLEAR MENTION OF ONE THING HERE ,THAT AFTER STATING THE ABOVE STATEMENTS,I AM NOT REPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOAN OR CARD WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN MY NAME AFTER 21ST OCT 2010 WITHOUT MY CONSENT OR MY APPROVAL.
Requesting you to please search these guys and stop them from committing any further frauds and if possible please retrieve my money from them.
I also personally request the newspapers to check the authencity of such people before putting their advertisements so that people like do not get into trouble.
