“Aapda Me Avsar” these words spoken by our Honorable PM Modi has been well accepted by some fraudulent persons. After Covid Pandemic, some peoples are still waiting to go for a travel with their family. And some fraudulent peoples are taking benefits of their wish. They incorporate a company and then start there game. They purchase mobile database of peoples who are well educated and earning handsome amount of money.
They starts calling to these peoples over the mobile and starts conversation with “Sir, our company has starts resorts business and in your area, we have selected 20 peoples, to whom we will provide 5 days free travelling package, where your all expenses will be taken care by our company. To accept this package, you have to meet our team at your nearby restaurant ABC. You have to come with your spouse and our team by take 30 Minutes to explain you the whole Process.”
When we hear FREE word then we starts get attractive and give them appointment to meet there team at specified time. When you visit the specified location, then you will see a team of 10-15 people’s combination of both male and females to give an impression that it is a good company. Like you, there are 8-10 others peoples to whom same offer is given. After that, there executive will attend you and give a form asking for your financial position and status. In this, they will ask, where you are working, you annual income, which car you are using, which bank debit/credit card you are using. You have to fill the form and after that they will plan their strategy accordingly
After reading your form a special manager will be allocated you for 30 minutes to explain you the whole, so called free travel package. They will show you and your spouse fake websites of other company and explain that they have tie up with these 4-5 starts hotels and resorts and as they are new in market and to promote their company they will provide 5-7 days stays each year for next 5 years at a package of xxx Amount only. These peoples marketing skills are so high that, in 90% cases they will convince you and take money out of your pocket. If you have Credit Card in your pocket then that conversion ratio goes to even 95%. They show so high dreams that, if you do not grab this opportunity today (because this opportunity is for today only and available to peoples who are present here) you will lose lifetime opportunity. To convince peoples, they run this racket in the name of Private Limited Company. They open bank accounts with multiples bank and have swipe machines of different banks to save their skin.
After making payment to them, they will sign an agreement with you to give assurance that everything is in written form and you have made payment by banking channel, so there is no scope of any fraud with you. But, as and when you come out of their coverage area, then you starts doubting there offer. How, it is possible to provide this costly offer in such low value and after that you starts searching about this company on Google and starts getting hint that you have been fooled by these peoples and you starts contacting/email them on their specified mobile number and you starts getting a tone “The Number which you are trying to reach is switched Off”
The same incident happened with me in 2020 and above is my true story. Now the question comes, how to recover this amount from these fraud peoples. In true word’s 99.9% will not be able to recover even a single penny from them. It takes 6.5 months to me to recover the amount from these peoples after so many hit and tries.
First of all, the documents in your possession plays a very crucial role in deciding the factor whether you will be able to get money back or not. You must raise dispute with your bank on this payment, if payment is made by banking Channel. If you file complain with bank/ police and other authorities within 30 days then chances of recovery are good. As the time lapse your chances of recovery money goes down. After my incident I received 2-3 calls where same incident happens with these peoples and out of them 1 people contacted with me within 1 months and I guided him the same process which I have followed to recover the money from these fraud persons. Last week that person informed me, that he got email from credit card company informing that case is decided in his favor and he will get refund of that disputed amount.
Author’s Advise: Dear friends, nothing is free in this word. Do not attend these kinds of events because these peoples selling skills are so high that, you will not be able to deny their offer. If you have low money then, they will customize their offer to grab even that small amount. Even, if you become victim of this racket then you should raise dispute over this transaction and file a complaint with police within 30 days. This time period is very important to recover you dues from these peoples. STAY AWARE, STAY SAFE
