Pune : Man duped of Rs 35 thousand using lawyer’s fake account on Facebook
According to the complaint, the suspects created a fake account on Facebook social networking site. The fake account was in the name of Adv Nikam.
Thereafter the suspects sent friend requests to all friends of Adv Nikam. After connecting to his friends, the suspects started sending messages to all of them asking for financial help for a friend of Adv Nikam. The message also contained the bank account details where the amount was supposed to be deposited. Adv Nikam’s real friends were unaware of the fake account created in his name. Hence they believed that the message came from Adv Nikam. One of the friends of Adv Nikam transferred Rs 35 thousand in the night around 1am when he received the fraudulent message.
