Bengaluru: Posing as a non-resident Indian (NRI), a woman allegedly duped a Nelamangala-based businessman of Rs. 4.7 lakh by promising to send ornaments he could use to help her buy a house. Rachana Karam had claimed to be a nurse in U.S. She befriended businessman Ravikumar R on a social networking website.

In her message, Rachana said she had gold ornaments and American dollars that could be converted to Indian currency so that she could buy the property with Ravikumar’s help. He asked her to send the gold and the dollars.

On October 2, Ravikumar received a call from Nisha Kumari who introduced herself as a customs official. She said that he had received a parcel from the U.S., but to claim it he would have to pay Rs. 4.7 lakh towards service charge. Ravi transferred the money to the account. When he didn’t get the parcel and was unable to reach the official, he knew he had been duped.
