Hyderabad: Fake companies con Canara Bank for Rs.2.71 crore

After taking loans and failing to repay them, two fictitious companies allegedly duped Canara Bank’s Balanagar branch.

One case involved AFS Constructions taking a loan from the bank of Rs 1.3 crore. It was discovered later that AFS was an inexistent company, but the loan had been processed using false collateral. It was alleged that two people, Mohd Chand Pasha and Fayaz Ahmed, were posing as directors.

In another case, the bank approved Rs 1.41 crore to Tirumala Enterprises Civil Engineering company based on fake property documents.

In an investigation after the companies failed to pay the loans, it was found that the companies did not exist and the borrowers submitted false documentation.

Two cases have been registered at the Hyderabad Central Crime Station, and they are under investigation. It is suspected that some bank officials might have colluded with the conmen.

Businessman duped of Rs.1 Cr in Crypto Scam

Cyber fraudsters conned a businessman from Mehdipatnam into making cryptocurrency investments worth Rs.1 crore.

Police confirmed that the victim’s phone number was added to a group on WhatsApp that had several people who reportedly dealt in cryptocurrency and made huge profits.
