Online-tasks scam: Dubai-Gujarat link emerges

The authorities have come across a case wherein people travelling to Dubai on tourist visas have been involved in cyber fraud activities in India. The North Cyber Cell recently apprehended four suspects from Gujarat, who during interrogation, revealed that such individuals were operating a cyber fraud gang in India while being located in Dubai.

The investigation pertained to a ‘task fraud’ case in which the fraudsters allegedly duped a woman of Rs 32.88 lakh. The woman had been promised a part-time job that would allow her to earn a daily income by liking, sharing, and rating various hotels and videos. She fell into their trap and lost her money, after which she reported the case to the North Cyber Cell in June.

Under the supervision of Senior Inspector Vijay Chandanshive, officers from the North Cyber Cell traced the account where the victim's money had been transferred. They detained the beneficiary account holder and obtained information that led to the arrest of four suspects —Hardik Panchal, 30, Nirav Bharatbhai Mishree, 32, Kautilya alias Viral Patel, 35, and Kirtan Gopalbhai Dola, 32—who are all from Ahmedabad.
