Indore (Madhya Pradesh): A person was duped of Rs 1.5 lakh by a conman, who posed as a courier company officer and sent a link to the complainant. However, the crime branch managed to return the entire amount to the bank account of the complainant.

According to a crime branch officer, Dushyant, a resident of the city had lodged a complaint to the crime branch through the cyber helpline. The complaint said that he had searched the customer care number of a courier company. He made a phone call to a mobile number and was informed by the receiver that he is an official of the company and could help him.

Later, the accused sent a link to the complainant and told him to share his information for the parcel. The complainant shared his information in the link after which he found that Rs 1.5 lakh were stolen from his bank account. He informed the bank about the same and later lodged a complaint with the crime branch.
