How Castler Escrow Could Have Protected a Nagpur Professor from a Task Fraud Scam

A Nagpur professor recently lost over Rs 37 lakh to a task fraud scam. The fraudsters contacted the professor on the pretext of offering him a job as a project manager. They asked him to deposit money into a bank account in order to purchase software and other equipment. The professor deposited the money, but the fraudsters never delivered the software or equipment.

If the professor had used Castler Escrow, he would have been protected from this scam. Castler Escrow is a platform that holds payments in escrow until both parties in a transaction are satisfied. This means that the professor would not have had to send any money to the fraudsters until he had received the software and equipment. Once he had received the goods and was satisfied, he would have released the money to the fraudsters.

In this case, the fraudsters would not have been able to steal the professor’s money because it would have been held in escrow by Castler. Castler has a strict policy against fraud, and we would have worked with the professor to recover his money.

This is just one example of how Castler Escrow can protect people from online scams. If you are considering making an online purchase, I highly recommend using a service like Castler Escrow. It is a simple way to protect yourself from online scams and ensure that you get what you pay for.


The Nagpur professor’s story is a cautionary tale about the dangers of online scams. However, it is also a reminder that there are ways to protect yourself from these scams. By using a service like Castler Escrow, you can rest assured that your money is safe until you are satisfied with the transaction.
