All of the victims lost more than Rs 3.50 lakh each to a company they agreed to work with for ‘digitalization of old English novels’.
Hundreds of people are believed to have already fallen prey to this scam – it will take time for all of them to file individual complaints at the police station, we are told.
“I don’t know what to do now. I found out about this company –
I received Rs 3.50 lakh in compensation from the company where I worked before the lockdown.
I deposited Rs 3.50 lakh with Truvisory Kode Core Pvt Ltd on March 19, 2022 and did not receive a single rupee from this company which claimed to scan and digitize English novels’ said
What is alarming is that the network of Truvisory Kode Core Pvt Ltd managed to deceive even legal consultants. For instance,
“I trusted Sanjay Sinha since I’ve known him for a few years. He ensured me to get the outsourcing contract and good income every month. So I deposited Rs 3.50 lakh with the company in March 2022. I also spent money to buy a scanner and a laptop to scan old English novels but did not receive any money so far. I started pressing Sinha for my money back but to no avail,’ Kumar said, adding that he was trying to contact more and more victims of the scam in the city.
The modus operandi of Truvisory Kode Core Pvt Ltd is to build trust with potential investors and unemployed people. Truvisory Kode Core Pvt Ltd team convinced
“At first there were no problems. I worked for Truvisory Kode Core Pvt Ltd and got Rs 1,30,000. Later they told me that they were closing small projects. They advised me to undertake bigger projects by investing Rs 42,50,000 to get more income. I appointed six people, bought three laptops and four scanners. I’m not sure I’ll get my money,’ Suresh Kumar said.
Cubbon Park Police filed a First Information Report (FIR) under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on October 20 against 10 people including Sanjay Sinha. Further investigations are ongoing.
