A 25-year-old woman from Nagpur in Maharashtra was cheated of Rs 5.17 lakh by online fraudsters who asked her to click on a link as part of the recruitment process in a Dubai-based firm, a police official said on Friday.
The unidentified persons first made her appear for an online exam and then sought a bank transfer of Rs 1,500 for profile verification, the official said.
“After getting her bank details, they withdrew Rs 5.17 lakh from her account between May 13 and 22. A case of cheating has been registered under Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act,” the cyber police official said.
