Nagpur, Dec 8: A 46-year-old housewife, Urmila Sanjiv Wasnik, was duped to the tune of Rs 91,380 when four persons, probably some foreign nationals in a cyber crime, police said on Saturday.
Police said Wasnik came across a message on internet from John Smith, Jacob Adams, Smith Morgan and Peter that she has won a lottery worth USD one lac and prize money transfer was facing some problems from customs.
She was asked to deposit Rs 91,380 with an account number in ICICI bank at Ramdaspeth branch, police said.
She deposited the money in two instalments on December 2 and 3 and realised later that she was a victim of a international fraud as no amount of lottery price was sent to her.
She has lodged a complaint with Dhantoli police which is investigating after registering offences under Section 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of IPC.
