Cyber ​​and Special Crime Division of Dhaka Metropolitan Detective Police (DB) has arrested Shahriar Khan, CEO of e-commerce site Neerapod Dot com, on charges of embezzling money through fraud.

On Tuesday, DB Cyber ​​and Special Crime Division, Deputy Commissioner of Police Mohammad Shariful Islam told in a press release that a victim named Ishtiaq Ahmed, a victim of fraud, filed a case at the Adabar Police Station under the Digital Security Act. The DB Cyber ​​Crime Division along with the police started a shadow investigation of the case. DB Cyber Crime Investigation Team arrested Shahriar Khan in a raid in the Shantinagar area of ​​the capital on Sunday, July 11, on the basis of relevant information.

Regarding the fraud of e-commerce site Neerapod Dot com, the official said the arrests took advance money from Shahriar’s customers through a Payment Gateway (SSL Commerce). They entice customers by promising home delivery of mobile phone sets, computers, laptops, refrigerators, ovens and other electronics items within 30 days at a 50% discount.

He added that their customer base is around 4,000 and they get about 12,000 orders in 11 months. Through which about 7-8 crore Takas is added to his bank. Most of those who have ordered products are students and low paid employees.

The DB official said that in the initial stage, they believe in delivering some products and posting positive reviews on their pages with those customers. Later, when they get more orders and advance payments, they start cheating by not delivering the goods. When consumers find out about this, they start demanding redressal through various social media and media. He later handed over a bank check asking for a refund from the customers but could not withdraw the money. The accused went missing a few days later.

To stay away from fraud, the DB official said that there are more than 2,000 website-based and about one lakh Facebook-based e-commerce sites in Bangladesh at present. Instead of being tempted by attractive advertisements everyone should check the marketplace and pay the price in cash on delivery instead of advance . In this way fraud and suffering can be avoided.
