Fake Facebook Profile on my friend got created and requested for money
Complain Detail:-> I received a Facebook request from a friend Ayush. On accepting request, he instantly asked my phone number since we haven’t talked for last 1 year. Few moments later I received a message saying his father has met with an accident and is admitted in hospital and is in urgent needs of money. Without thinking much and in panic state I transferred the requested amount of Rs 10,000 through UPI using Google Pay App. When I called him to understand the situation I realized this friend never sent me friend request or asked me for money. It was a fake profile and a fraud transaction. I visited local police station within one hour of this incident to report the complaint, but inspector denied my request and asked me to contact cybercrime branch.
