Mumbai Cyber Cell DCP Rashmi Karandikar told ABP News that she had received a complaint from a woman, after which a case was registered and investigation started and then arrested Ashish from Surat.
According to the police, Ashish, a computer engineer by profession, had created a website to sell women’s clothes online and on this website used to cheat women in the name of selling many types of expensive clothes cheaply.
The inquiry revealed that Ashish, a crores of cloth merchant in Surat after studying from the University of London, suffered a lot during the Lokdown, due to which he chose the wrong path to pay his debts and about more than 22 thousand women Duped millions in the name of selling expensive clothes cheaply.
Her father sent her to study at a university in London because of her good education. Ashish completed computer engineering from there and came to India in early 2016.
He took over his father’s business in Surat and then later started a second clothing business with one of his relatives. Ashish was such a worker that he started his new business with Rs 2 lakh and earned crores of rupees from that business.
After demonetisation in November 2016 and then GST in July 2017, he started losing business, after which he somehow managed himself and borrowed about Rs 3 crore from the market.
Ashish still could not get any relief in business and could not repay the loan at the given time and then started designing web pages, which he had studied from London. In the year 2020, the loss of his clothes and web page business increased further due to the lockdown.
According to police sources, he had sold a website named “Shopiiee.com” to one of his customers. But even if that customer did not profit from that website, Ashish took that website from him and then started cheating people using that website.
How we see advertisements of our choice and how we should be alert
Karandikar said that whatever we find on Google, we see the same thing on our social media platform. In all these times, we believe in fake websites too and are cheated. Do not trust any such website. We should first read the reviews of the people on that website, after which you will get an idea how much trust can be given to it. During the investigation, we have got a list of many fake websites, which we are investigating.
