As per the police, the victim was identified as Mohit Kumar (23) who is a resident of Amrapali Zodiac in Sector 120. Mohit informed the police that he got call from the fraudster on March 4. The caller introduced himself as Akash from a job portal. “I was lured by the offer as I was looking for job for a long time,” said the victim. In the complaint, the victim has mentioned that the fraudster had asked him to deposit registration fee of Rs 2,500 online. The victim immediately transferred the amount.
