Scammed in the name of Patanjali Ayurveda (55000 Rs)

Hi Dimers,

I need some expert opinions here.

I was looking for long-term treatment for my ill parents. They have been diabetic for the last few years, and I finally decided to book a treatment at Patanjali Yoggram, Haridwar.
I searched for Patanjali Yogpeeth on Google, and I called on the first result with the following details:Phone - 09027316470
Website - https://yogapeethbooking.in/

The person told me he was from Patanjali and would help me book a slot.

He also shared the bank details as follows:


 Name:- PATANJALI YOGPEETH TRUST

 Bank:- PUNJAB NATIONAL BANK

 A/c:- 0179000100336774

 IFSC Code:- PUNB0487100

 Branch:- Patanjali Yogpeeth Santersha

 State:- Uttarakhand

 District:- Haridwar


The account name and branch look genuine, so I transferred Rs. 55,000. 

Later he demanded more money for some tests, which made me suspicious.


On searching a bit more, I realized that I had been scammed.

I have raised a complaint with my Bank and Cyber Cell. Both say chances of getting money back is NIL.

Surprisingly, I was told that Bank doesn't verify the name on the account if amount is less than 2 lakh.

What can I do in this case?

If you transferred the money yourself then chances of getting help from banks is very low.

And if your parents are diabetic get proper medications too (allopathic), do not stop taking allopathic medicines if you want to try Ayurvedic treatment (which I am against but to each their own).

If you are going for Ayurvedic treatment get their liver kidneys checked every 3 month.

This is maybe a warning sign from the higher power you belive in to avoid this alternative medications altogether.

I do agree that I transferred it.

But don't you think this is 420 case?

I feel so sorry  .

I'm praying.

And if you fail to recover that amount please don't be disheartened. 

And don't tell your parents about it.

Take care.

File FIR .

50,000 is a big amount but tension added to it as interest is a huge burden.

Don't blame yourself.

And in the meanwhile forget that the day ever existed and you gave 55k to a scammer .

Forget it.

Take care of you and your family.

For anything other than the most trivial conditions alternative treatment modes aren't recommended. Effectiveness hasn't been clinically validated and a wide range of potential side effects, even severe, exist that these practitioners haven't documented.

That's a huge loss for the OP, I sympathise. But what you said is spot on. He would have been scammed even if it was sent to the right account too. There is nothing like a permanent solution.

I can understand and sorry for the loss

but you made a mistake dude . Before transferring the amount you should have investigated the website 

see it is complete fake and looks they forget to complete the website 

Everywhere on BookNow option Call option is coming , apart from this Contact page is completely irrevelant 

see they entered location as 

LOCATION

UZ 90 - Udaipur Kurdh Rajasthan

You should have carefully checked the site

Apart from the current topic,

Alternative medicine is good just a side treatment but please don't rely on that.

Consult a proper diabetologist.

If you don't know any such doc, you can search on practo.

Solely relying on ayurveda or yoga may do tremendous harm to the health of your parents.

Approach Punjab National Bank to block this account and recover amount transferred with a copy of FIR. Go to a PNB branch and also email to the branch manager of the account

Sorry for your loss Brother. Please learn from your mistakes for future safety and move on. 

It seems you were in hurry for all this process. 

Please consider my comments as advice for future, not as finding your mistakes.

1)Never pick a no. From google for contacting any support. 

2) Always check for spelling mistakes in URL.

As in your case it's yogapeethbooking.in  (it should be Yogpeeth).

3)When there is any money transfer transaction in between then always check for account related details. Twice or thrice and when you got sured, then only proceed.

Tag Yogiji and Modiji on Twitter. Cyber Police and local police will then take your complaint seriously and nab these culprits. Do it

Hope the lesson is learnt : Booking or doing all online but still stuck to babaji stuff? Babaji ki naam hi kaafi hai, par kaam nahin, poora jalwa dikha diya na! Go for a modern medicine hospital next time and don't book online, physically visit...

Langothi pehen ke, hath jod ke, ek pair pe khade hoke dharna maroge police station ya bank ke saamne to bhi kuch accha hone ka chance nahin dikh raha... yeh paschataap bhi kaam naa ayega...

These scammers are a shame to the country. I was in some international group on telegram where a guy posted about getting scammed of 40k dollars ( 42Lakhs) from a customer care executive who was calling from India but acting like they were from US.

If you would have paid by cc then you could have disputed it. Even upi have dispute option. Bank transfer dose not have any dispute options.

----- upi dispute isnt as good as cc i think. Even with cc, what happens after disputing ?? The payment would have already reached the party right ?

everyone next time when transacting on a unknown website, please make sure the following

1. Check Site Domain registration details online (to check if it is recently registered)
2. Make sure u make payment only via Online portal. like billdesk or something except Bank transfer. (unless u know them well)
3. Check for site reviews available online (just Google website name and u will find)
4. Dont ever tell OTP online. even they are trustworthy. most time scammers do it. if any thing need to be updated just visit branch instead of sharing OTP online.

File complaint online through https://cybercrime.g...n/ and do a FIR in ur local police station. In case they do not write FIR, do call at 112 where each call is recorded for FIR.

Do contact to your bank and give a request to reverse the payment which is possible within first 24 hour from the time of payment.

File FIR with local police station plus Cybercrime complaint.

Take FIR copy and request SP or IG to look into this matter if local police wala is slow or taking no action.

MLAya local media wala ki bhi help lein if local police wala is not filing FIR.

Don't rely on babas for treatment

This ramdev mocks allopathy calls it stupid science but he and his aides take allopathy medicine and get admitted to allopathy hospitals if needed 

He often recommends to eat cow dung drink cow urine and lauki ka juice for every disease 

One should not fall for such Babas and always opt for professional doctors and modern medicine 

Your money deposited into Sumit Singh's account 

I suggest you Don't forget your money immediately call cyber helpline and file proper complaint and mention your local thana there if you really need to recover your money

The only genuine way to know the name of the bank is via UPI verify option. 

If the scammer is giving name, like even gives like rattan tata, name is quite irrelevant in IMPS/NEFT. wrong name but correct acc transfer will still proceed and will be sucessful. The problem is with the scamster ofc but also with you not know basic banking. Don't mind what I said.

Dost, go to nearest endocrinologist cum diabetologist. Take the meds. Take them from nearest generic store. At least parent's treatment will not be stopped.
