Delhi High Court Orders Investigation into AJIO Scam; Reliance Industries Takes Swift Action

In response to a pervasive and deceptive scam, the Delhi High Court has taken swift and decisive action by instructing the Delhi Police's Cyber Cell to launch a comprehensive investigation. This elaborate scam revolves around fraudulent activities masquerading as the renowned online fashion and lifestyle brand, AJIO. Scammers have deployed a range of tactics, including prize money schemes and scratch cards/coupons, to dupe unsuspecting individuals into depositing money for sham offers.

Reliance Industries, the entity behind the e-commerce platform, lodged a formal complaint that spurred the court's response. Perpetrators of this sophisticated scam have systematically defrauded victims by convincing them to deposit varying amounts, ranging from Rs. 5,000 to 10 lakhs. The promise of valuable scratch cards upon depositing these sums served as the bait for victims.

The scammers behind this operation demonstrated a high level of sophistication, employing numerous mobile numbers and bank accounts to collect deposits from their unsuspecting victims. Their methods were so convincing that recipients found it exceedingly difficult to distinguish these deceptive communications from legitimate ones originating from AJIO.

In response to the alarming rise in fraudulent activities, the Delhi High Court has issued orders to freeze not only the implicated bank accounts but also to secure the Know Your Customer (KYC) details of the scammers. Additionally, the court has mandated the collection of account statements from the inception of these accounts to the present date, aiming to uncover the full extent of this elaborate scam.

Reliance Industries has escalated its fight against fraud by formally filing a complaint against six entities. These entities are accused of orchestrating a deceptive scheme wherein they utilized the name "AJIO Online Shopping Pvt Ltd" and a Kolkata-based address to dispatch fraudulent calls and messages. Through these deceptive communications, they successfully deceived unsuspecting customers, ultimately leading to the illicit extraction of their hard-earned money.

The Delhi High Court's intervention and the proactive measures taken by Reliance Industries underscore the seriousness of this scam. With the investigation underway and crucial data secured, there is hope that justice will be served, and the perpetrators of this intricate fraud will be brought to justice
