He lost Rs 5.6 lakh which was paid by him as ‘processing fees’ to claim his ‘winning prize money’. The payment was made following an email received by him informing that he has won a lottery online. After making the said payment, the actor never received the promised sum and when he contacted his fraudsters, they became incommunicado.



 

A police officer from Khar police station, where the complaint has been lodged, said:

“The actor has shared his account details and we are probing the case. Online lottery scams are rampant and many times they are operated from offshore. Though, in this case the actor has shared the mobile numbers of the fraudsters and we are working on it.”
