According to a News channel, two alleged online scammers set up fake housing and vehicle finance organizations on well-known e-commerce platforms and defrauded people out of billions of rupees.
The victims claim that over 200 FIRS have been made against unidentified people thus far, but no enforcement action has been taken.
According to reports, the suspects lure customers by giving them low-cost housing and vehicle alternatives through shadow businesses on the nation’s online purchasing portals.
After receiving a down payment from the people, they next employ delay strategies through intricate contract clauses.
If the victims file a police report or complaint, the perpetrators frequently change the identities of the bogus businesses.
Furthermore, in 2021, a case against these corporations was transferred from the high court to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), but authorities have made little headway in this area.
Azhar Abbas Naqvi, one of the victims, claimed that 716 people had been taken advantage of by these groups but that no arrests had been made in order to retrieve the money that had been stolen.
The news organization repeatedly tried to call the suspects but was unable to do so.
