Dungarpur youths lure, dupe over 300 onlinefaking escort service | Jaipur Information

Jaipur: Udaipur police have blown up an online escort service and arrested four people from the Salumbar Tehsil district of Chennai and Chandigarh who allegedly cheated on over 300 people.
The youths arrested are originally from the Dungarpur district. Police said they were surprised to find out that the high school dropout defendants learned from Hyderabad how to cheat people this way. They targeted people in Chennai and Chandigarh through the ad listing in the city / region and received payments on their e-wallet accounts.
The defendants – Manilal Velgi, Manilal Manji, Jitendra and Harish – were caught by police after they pointed out that some youths living in the Salumbar area were extravagantly spending and possibly involved in illegal activities. The police were unaware that the interstate escort thug was evicted from the small town when they raided the place.
“The police searched the rented accommodation and found several cell phones, fake SIM cards, laptops and Rs 5 lakh in cash,” said SP Rajiv Pachar of the Udaipur police.
“At first we thought it was a brawler, but an investigation found that they had been running an escort beater for the past 15 days,” Pachar said. During the interrogation, the defendant revealed how they cheated on people.
“They started uploading advertisements to the Locanto mobile application to provide an escort service. Those who clicked on the ad were taken to a page with blurred images of women. A popup will appear asking the customer if they are interested in the women paying Rs 500. A picture gallery is then opened in which the customer is given the opportunity to select the women they want. They were again asked to pay 5,000 rupees in advance to confirm interest in the service, “police said.
At every stage, the application prevented the customer from calling the culprits. The images shown to customers were captured from social media.
Mukesh Choudhary, a cybercrime expert who supports the Udaipur police force, said Locanto is a classifieds portal used to defraud people. “We confirm how many inbound transactions have been carried out in your e-wallets in order to determine the exact number of people you defrauded. Also, their WhatsApp chats are being checked to see if the racket has spread to more cities, ”Choudhary said.
