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?

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.

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?

Yes it's a 420 case .

But against whom you're going to file the case?

The person to whom the bank account belongs is maybe an innocent villager. The account was made without his consent by the scamster.

And about money recovery- 

Most of the times scamsters buy crypto asap the fund arrives rather than psiphoning it to different accounts so virtually it's impossible to recover funds.

Btw if your bank is a psu one ,it's better to forget about the money.

If it's icici there's a slight hope . Specially if you're their privilege customer.

But better you forget it and move on.

It is a fraud cases. You can only get money back if the scammers can be captured and money can be recovered from them.

Banks deny their liability in this case. I went to hdfc to deposit money few years back where they ask me to sign an acknowledgement that I verified where I was transferring money to and they are not liable in case of a fraud.

I would suggest just file the cases you can and don't waste too much time on it.

Spend time on positive things, earning money , taking care of parents etc.

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.

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

Yes, complaint on all possible channels with full description and fraudsters account details, with a copy of cyber fir tagging PNB. Also request your own bank for chargeback or reversal of transaction. Lodge complaint with banks thru email to nodal officer alongwith copy of FIR and full description of fraud. Keep sending reminders every week. Since amount is big you can even visit the local branch and seek details of account holder.

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...

Approach local PNB branch with copy of fir & ask for suspension of this fraud acc. If it is really a fraud acc then pnb will find it easily by verifying kyc details of acc holder.

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.
