Moradabad News: Gang Involved in Cyber Fraud under the Pretense of Providing Loans, Two Women Arrested

Moradabad. Two women involved in cyber fraud, deceiving people by offering loans through a call center located in the Majhola area, have been arrested. The gang's mastermind, along with three other suspects including an uncle-nephew duo, are currently on the run, and the police have formed teams to apprehend them. The police have seized mobile phones, laptops, and other items from the call center.
SP City Akhilesh Bhadouriya revealed the details of the cyber fraud gang operating above the Raj Fashion Shop on the upper floor near Putligarh Tiraha in the Majhola area. They would make calls to people, luring them with the promise of loans, and trapping them in their scam. On Tuesday morning, the police conducted a raid at the location. Two women were apprehended, and during interrogation, they identified themselves as Noori Parveen, daughter of Ishtiyaq Hussain from Mugulpura Police Station, and Sangita, daughter of Sapna Kumar from Miln Vihar in Majhola. The police recovered 11 mobile phones, one laptop, a list of customer mobile numbers, passbooks of several banks, credit cards, and debit cards from the scene. The women revealed that Yogesh, a resident of Patel Nagar Railway Harthala Colony in Civil Lines, was the one running the gang. Ravi Kumar from the Swar Thana area in Rampur, Kavendra from Thakurdwara's Nanhuwala, and his nephew Naman from Lalwala Village, Thakurdwara, were also part of the gang. Naman is a resident of Laluwala Village, Thakurdwara. The women explained that they would deceive people by offering online loans and then extract their bank account details under the guise of completing formalities. SP Arpit Kapoor stated that the arrested women were presented in court on Tuesday evening and subsequently sent to jail. The police teams are currently searching for the mastermind and the other accused, who will be arrested soon.

To convince people to take loans, the callers would transfer the calls to senior officials. Yogesh and Ravi Kumar would engage in conversations with the victims and offer various deals. They would transfer money in the name of file charges. Additionally, they would ask for the account details of some individuals and empty their accounts.

The accused would obtain data through the Register app used in society, colonies, malls, and shopping complexes. Kavendra and Naman would provide Yogesh with the collected mobile numbers. Yogesh would then make calls to Noori and Sangita. They also ran advertisements for cheap loans on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and OLX. They would contact people whose numbers they obtained through the ads.

The arrested women revealed during questioning that they primarily targeted people from other cities and states. They would assure them that their loan would be confirmed online, and there was no need to visit any bank. Yogesh had rented a building on Putli Ghar Road to establish the call center six months ago. Subsequently, Sangita and Noori were employed for making calls. In the past six months, they had defrauded over 500 people.
