How Castler Escrow Could Have Prevented the Nagpur Cyber Fraud

In a recent case, a bank manager in Nagpur lost Rs 5.10 lakh in a cyber fraud. The victim was trying to sell some household items on an online marketplace when she was contacted by a fraudster. The fraudster asked the victim to send Rs 60 as an initial verification transaction. After the victim did so, the fraudster withdrew Rs 1.01 lakh from her account. The fraudster then convinced the victim to pay Rs 9,000 in order to “refund” the initial amount. The victim paid the money, but the fraudster continued to withdraw money from her account until she had lost a total of Rs 5.10 lakh.

This scam could have been prevented if the victim had used Castler Escrow. Castler Escrow is a platform that holds payments in escrow until both parties in a transaction are satisfied. In this case, the victim would have deposited the money into the escrow account managed by Castler. The funds would then only have been released to the fraudster once the victim had received the household items and confirmed that they were in good condition.

As a result, the victim would have been protected from financial loss. Even if the fraudster had sent the victim the household items, the victim would not have been able to release the funds from the escrow account until they had confirmed that the items were genuine.

This is just one example of how Castler Escrow can help to prevent fraud. If you are considering making an online payment, we encourage you to use Castler Escrow to protect yourself from financial loss.
