Borivali police have registered a case of cheating against Unique Group and Company which duped 200 businessmen and farmers and is now on the run. The company was situated at Borivali’s Nutan Nagar’s Sodawala lane.
The company had published an advertisement in newspapers stating that they provide loans in less time. Many businessmen and farmers from Nashik, Malegaon, and Jalgaon read this advertisement and applied for the loan. The company asked these people to deposit 10% of said loan. After doing so, the company officials switched off their mobile phones. Farmers and businessmen came to Borivali and saw the office locked and approached the police station to file a complaint.
Borivali police are now investigating the case. They have also urged others to first check the authenticity of the company and then invest. “We have registered a case of cheating against the company. For now, we have been approached by nine people who lost in total Rs.4.50 crore and us sure figures will increase further,” said Gunaji Sawant, senior PI.
“Agents of this company approached us and told us that they could give us loans. We have our own company at Nashik and I needed the loan for it. We invested Rs. 14 lakh as a stamp duty. We were told by the company that they will deposit R. 1.50 core in my account. Then we were asked to come the next day for the agreement procedure. But when we reached the office it was locked,” said Nilesh Karale.
“Till now I have deposited Rs. 1.5 lakh and I was told to come to the office for agreement procedure. But no one turned up,” said Shivaji Patil.
