The Raidurgam police busted a network of a cyber-fraudster who was running a fake grocery and furniture website. The person, now identified as Rishabh Upadhyay or Chandan, was behind two fake websites www.zopnow.in and www.modwayfurniture.in. 


Chandan got people to believe that he was selling groceries and furniture at rather cheap prices when compared to the market and duped many across India. Rupees 40 lakh was, and other material was seized from Chandan, though his partner Rahul from Punjab is still absconding. Chandan hails from Varanasi in UP and worked as a freelancer for developing websites, taking projects from clients, etc. 


Later, about three years back, he was contacted by a person from the US seeking his help to develop a website www.jobfinder.info. Chandan came to know that the website was not genuine and that many people got cheated by paying to the site. 


So, he simulated a similar operation and created a website similar to zopnow.com, which was once a grocery website in Bengaluru, which is no longer operational. Modway.com happens to be a furniture website in Canada. According to Cyberabad police commissioner VC Sajjanar, Chandan and his friend also created several fake Skype Ids and made false promises of getting people US onsite job visas and made them open new bank accounts and collected their banking credentials. He also opened 20 cash-free payment gateway accounts using the credentials of various people he duped promising US visas. 


The whole operation came to light when a techie from Khajaguda filed a complaint with the Cyberabad Cyber Crime Police. The police have issued some guidelines based on the issue:


  • Do not believe in fake websites 
  • Do not believe in websites offering huge discounts
  • Do not pay money in advance for getting goods online
  • Do not believe in websites offering goods for much cheaper than the market price


If one is suspicious, they can contact 9490617310 (Cyber Crime PS, Cyberabad) or Whatsapp 9490617444.
