Matrimonial Scam Alert: Gurugram Executive Falls Victim to Rs 38 Lakh Cryptocurrency Fraud

A Gurugram-based consulting firm executive recently became the target of a ₹38 lakh scam perpetrated by a woman he connected with on a matrimonial website. This alarming incident unfolded as the unsuspecting executive was enticed into investing in a cryptocurrency known as deuncoin, coupled with additional charges.

Last November, Naman Aggarwal, the victim, encountered a woman named Ridhi Sharma on the matrimonial platform jeevansathi.com. Claiming to be from Kolkata and residing in London for the past five years, Ridhi Sharma successfully allured Aggarwal into the cryptocurrency investment scheme, creating a trading account on m.deuncoin.vip.

As part of the scam, Ridhi Sharma shared details of the supposed customer care team of the trading platform through WhatsApp. The situation took a dark turn when Aggarwal received a deceptive message from the Deuncoin customer care support team on WhatsApp, alleging that the funds transferred by the woman were involved in money laundering.

Despite complying with this demand by depositing ₹10 lakh, the fraudsters persisted, forcing him to transfer additional amounts under different charges, ultimately extorting a total of ₹38 lakh.

Frustrated and realizing the fraudulent nature of the scheme, Aggarwal reported the incident to the cyber police station in Gurugram, leading to the registration of an FIR against the unknown woman and other fraudsters under Section 420 (cheating) of the IPC. A senior cyber police officer assured that an ongoing investigation is in progress, with arrests anticipated in the near future.
