victim received another email wherein the company requested him to transfer the remaining payment to their new bank account, which was in New York.
“The e- mail address this time was a bit different than the company’s original one. However, the victim could not spot the difference and went on to deposit Rs27.60 lakh in the New York- based account on June 12. On June 17, when Shah inquired with the company about the receipt of payment, the company replied in the negative. The victim then went through the address from which he had received the email and realised it was fake,” the officer said.
Shah then registered a complaint with the police.
