A 34-year-old woman was reportedly duped of Rs 85 000 in a series of fraudulent transactions while trying to make table reservation at a Santacruz-base restaurant on a number list online, police say. Number, they add, do not belong to restaurant and had been fraudulently added by scammers to trick people. A woman, Manpreet Madan, and her relatives were heading to Shiv Sagar restaurant, on Juhu Tara Road in Santacruz, for dinner on Sunday, when one of them called food joint on contact number listed on Google to make a reservation. While calls go unanswered twice, they receive a call from the same number little while later. Person, who reportedly identified himself as Deepak Mishra, restaurant staffer, claimed that there was a waiting period of 45-60 minutes for get table. Police say Mishra reportedly also said they could pay Rs 25 and skip the queue. He told them to make payments using Google Pay, digital wallet platform. Mishra said they would receive message on their mobile phone which they would have to forward to another phone number that would, in turn, send another link where payment could be make. Madan, whose phone number was forwarded to Mishra from transaction, reportedly received a message, which she then forwarded to a second number from where she received a second message that contained a Google page link which had entered UPI pin and submit options. According to Madan, after she entered details, instead of Rs 25, total of Rs 85 000 was debit from her bank account in a series of transactions. Madan reportedly called Mishra and sought to speak to the restaurant manager, but he hung up and stopped answering calls. On reaching the restaurant, Madan found that the number did not belong to the restaurant. Madan later approached Santacruz police, where FIR was registered on charge of cheating against unidentified persons. Sources say that prima facie, call seems to originate from West Bengal. Employees at the Juhu branch of Shiv Sagar restaurant say they were aware that fake phone numbers had been listed as restaurants contact details online. Staff members say the restaurant had submitted a complaint to Google and local police two weeks ago, however, till late Wednesday evening, listing for the restaurant continued to show a fraudulent number. The city has witnessed a slew of cases where fraudsters have changed the listings of wine shops and banks and entered their own numbers. When unsuspecting people call these numbers with queries, fraudsters pose as employees of establishment and take money from them under various pretexts. A Google spokesperson say, We work hard to fight against spammers and protect people from scams. When these fake numbers are report, we remove them. On Google, apart from owners listing their particular establishments, people can make changes to details of other shops and establishments, which is seen as an effort to keep the latest information available online.
