“Sumit told the police that he received a phone call on March 8 and caller introduced himself as Sunny Chopra from Tourist company, which provides a tour in foreign. He was looking for a tour online as well so the victim thinks that he may be applied for it,” the police said. 

In his complaint, the victim has mentioned that firstly the fraudster asked him to deposit a registration fees Rs 5000 online and Sumit immediately transferred the amount. Then the fraudster asked him to deposit more money for ticket and hotel bookings. 

This did not end here. The fraudster again asked money twice and he transferred the money into his account. And, then the fraudster claimed that he would send the itinerary shortly about the travel.
