Cybercrooks: Cybercrooks Extort 13 Buyers Of Sexual Wellness Remedies Out Of 4l | Ahmedabad News | #cybercrime | #computerhacker


Ahmedabad: Cybercrime police on Tuesday arrested two men for allegedly extorting Rs 4 lakh from 13 men — who had bought ayurvedic remedies for sexual wellness — using the threat of legal proceedings and the potential social embarrassment. Cybercrime branch ACP Hardik Makadia said they arrested two men for the offence — Ajay Verma, 25, a resident of Ramrajyanagar in Amraiwadi and Himanshu Parmar, 18, a resident of Chandan Tenement Society near Jashodanagar. Makadia said Verma’s elder brother had established an ayurvedic medicines company in Amraiwadi and advertised on the Facebook marketplace. Verma had been working for his elder brother in sales and got leads such as their customers’ numbers from various sources. Verma had once spoken to a person who told him that he had once bought an ayurvedic remedy for sexual wellness and someone had later tried to cheat him, by trying to scare him with a legal notice. Verma thought this was something he could exploit and asked the person to send him a copy of the legal notice. As he was not selling the medicines, he decided he would extort people by scaring them using this modus operandi. He hired Parmar and they began the scam. They would call men, whose details they had got for Verma’s brother’s business. They would tell them that they had left bad ratings and reviews online for a certain sexual wellness medicine and the manufacturer was going to register a case against them. Many of them got scared by the threat of the case and the likely embarrassment they would face and paid them sums between Rs 40,000 and Rs 50,000. Cybercrime police acted after a 48-year-old businessman from Nikol filed a complaint on Saturday, alleging that a man posing as a policeman from Gandhinagar Cybercrime police had threatened to frame him by sending him forged documents. The fraudster, who identified himself as PSI Hemant Singh from Gandhinagar Cybercrime branch, threatened the businessman with jail for returning a parcel containing medicine and for leaving bad reviews of it online. The complainant said that the fraudster, who turned out to be Verma, had tried to extort Rs 30,980 from him.
