Bengaluru doctor seeks internet connection, loses Rs 74,000 | Bengaluru News

BENGALURU: An ophthalmologist, who was trying to get internet connection, was cheated of Rs 74,420 by a person who claimed to be an employee of a service providing firm.
Dr Nagarathna Bailey from Hanumantanagar stated in her complaint that she was trying to get a connection for her son who is pursuing an engineering course. She had sent an online request to a service provider on April 29 this year and received a call from the customer care services of the firm the same day. The doctor was told that an executive would be sent to explain the tariff and other plan details.
The next day, a person identified as Bhanuchandra M met her at the workplace. While she enquired him about the six-month plan, he suggested she choose another plan where a router would be offered free of cost. She agreed and paid him Rs 74,420, including Rs 33,560 in cash.
But the man neither provided any internet connection nor returned her money. She found his mobile phone was switched off and the service provider did not respond to her complaint. Shankarapura police have registered a case of cheating.
