**Bhubaneswar:** As the age-old wise saying goes “Greed is the gateway to hell”, such greed has fooled even an educated lady and who is also ironically a jail staff of Odisha capital city. The victim has been identified as Minati Biswal of Nayapalli area here who has been duped by some miscreants over phone and had to shell out Rs 10 lakhs.
According to reports, Minati got a call from an unknown number around a week ago. The unknown caller claimed himself to be from America and passed on an astounding message of she having hit a jackpot of Rs 1 crore. The caller even motivated her to deposit Rs 10 lakhs in lieu of the big money gain. She was even given a bank account number to deposit which she complied without even giving a second thought.
She was even threatened by saying that if she refused to receive the parcel, she might be arrested by the Delhi Police.
After being pricked profusely by such an online prank and hoodwinking, she has filed a written complaint with the State Crime Branch (CB) Cyber Crime Cell.
A probe has been initiated by the Odisha CB, CID sleuths.
