A Mumbai-based 46-year-old yoga teacher has been duped Rs 3.36 lakh by a man she met on dating app Tinder.

 

The police said the man, Amit Kumar, claimed to be a doctor staying in Manchester, England.

 

The woman, resident of Churchgate area in south Mumbai, got acquainted with the man on the dating app Tinder recently and interacted with him, he said.

 

After a couple of days of communication, they exchanged phone numbers and started chatting on WhatsApp.

 

The official said that on April 25, the man told the victim that he had sent her a gift, which she had to collect.

 

After some days, a woman claiming to be from a courier company in Delhi called the victim and said there was a gift for her from Manchester.

 

The official said the caller demanded money from the victim to complete formalities for sending her the gift.

 

The victim allegedly deposited Rs 3.36 lakh into various accounts specified by the caller, he said.

 

She later realised that she was being cheated, following which she approached the Marine Drive police on Tuesday and filed a complaint.

 

The official said that based on the complaint, a case was registered against the man and the caller under relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act, and a probe was launched into it.
