According to the report of ‘Times of India’, a software engineer working in a company in Gandhinagar contacted the cyber crime police on Saturday and said that he was a victim of a cryptocurrency scam. He has suffered a loss of more than Rs 1 crore from a woman.

The victim named Kuldeep Patel has revealed in the FIR that he had met a woman named Aditi on a matrimonial site in the month of June. Aditi told him that she had an import and export business in the UK. He can also earn good profits, for this he will have to invest in ‘Banocoin’. Believing Aditi, Patel spoke to a ‘Bancoin customer service representative’. Then he registered himself on their website and started investing money in the hope of good returns.

Investing the first Rs 1 lakh showed a profit of 78 USDT (US Dollar Tether) in his crypto account. Then he invested the higher amount 18 times. All investments were made between July 20 and August 31. When Patel tried to withdraw Rs 2.59 lakh from his account on September 3, he was told that his account had been frozen.
