Mumbai: A 37-year-old man from Mumbai has claimed that loan recovery agents allegedly threatened to call each person on his contact list and invite them to his funeral if he didn’t repay them. The agents allegedly said they would tell the man’s contacts that he had passed away.

According to Kurar police, the complainant is a resident of Hanuman Nagar in Kurar in Malad (East) and works in a club in Chembur.

According to the victim, since he was in need of some money, he was searching on the internet for the loan app. On May 5, the victim found an app and downloaded it on her phone.

The victim shared his identity card details, bank details and a photograph on the app. It was found from the app that a loan of three thousand rupees has been approved, but only 1500 rupees have been deposited in the victim’s bank account.

Police said that the said loan was to be repaid by June 10. On June 09, messages started coming to the victim to repay the loan.

“Recovery agents threaten the victim in their messages that they have her contact list and if he does not pay, then they would call every in the contact list and would inform them that the victim has passed away and request them to attend his funeral and tarnish his image,” said a police officer.

The accused also shared his obscene morphed picture with the victim. Fed up with this, the victim approached the police and lodged a criminal complaint in the matter.

The police have registered a case on charges of cheating and dishonest abetment for distribution of property, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace, and punishment for criminal intimidation and fraud by using computer resources.
