Gurgaon: A man has been accused of cheating a Mumbai-based trader on the pretext of selling garments, the Gurgaon police said on Monday.
Rajesh Singh told the police that in March, he had come across a link on Facebook, promising “export quality” garments at cheaper prices. The company’s address on the social media site read as: DLF Phase-2, Gurgaon. “There was a mobile number mentioned in the link. The man who received my call introduced himself as Sunil Bharadwaj. He said he deals in the business of garment exports.” After discussing business, Singh asked Sunil to send over some samples. Instead, the accused showed him garments at his factory and warehouse via video calls. Next, Singh ordered 100 lowers (trousers) from the company — Hind Enterprise — making a payment of Rs 14,790.
When the order did not reach Mumbai in the next few days, Singh contacted the accused who assured him that the consignment will soon reach him. He also shared a receipt of transportation with Singh.
On March 27, Singh received a parcel, which was full of scrap paper and washing soaps. “I shared pictures of the contents with them. The accused told me that a wrong parcel had reached me. He assured me that the right one would reach me in a few days. Even after two months, I did not get any parcel,” Singh said, adding that the receipt also turned out to be fake.
Gurgaon police spokesperson Subhash Boken said: “We are trying to trace the accused.”
