Mangaluru: Police reported that a retired engineer in Mangaluru was purportedly defrauded of ₹1.6 crore by individuals posing as representatives of an international courier service.

These imposters claimed that a package the victim had dispatched contained incriminating documents and drugs, known to investigative agencies.

They demanded a “caution deposit,” assuring its return after the inquiry’s conclusion. Between May 2-6, the victim transferred the sum to them. The scam came to light when he confided in his daughter. The case has been lodged at the Cyber, Economic, and Narcotics Crime Police Station in Mangaluru city.
