Customer Loses Rs 10,000 to Fraudsters While Booking Table at Guwahati Based Restaurant
GUWAHATI: In yet another phone scam incident, Bhaswati Pathak, a resident of Guwahati was cheated after she tried to book a table at Isle Natura, a popular resort in Panikhaiti. Around Rs. 10,000 was fraudulently withdrawn from her account when she called the resort’s number, as listed on Google (7632098518).
Talking to G Plus, Pathak said “I found the number on Google, which read that it was of Isle Natura, Panikhaiti. After receiving the call, they asked me to transfer Rs. 900 and also had sent a form where I had to fill my details along with my ‘BHIM UPI’ number, as a part of an advance towards booking the table. In a short while, I received a message that Rs 10,000 was deducted from my account."
“I also went to the bank and took out the details of the account and have submitted it to the police station but till now I have not received any update about the case”, she added.
Hemen Sarma, Owner of Isle Natura stated that, they were not aware about the fraudulent number registered in Google listings. He also assured his full cooperation in the case.
Both the parties have registered a case and more details in this regard are awaited.
Earlier this month, a similar incident happened with a customer, who tried to book a table at Mocha Guwahati. Around Rs. 23,000 was fraudulently withdrawn from her account when she called the cafe’s number, as listed on Google (8927660407).
