A 25-year-old man was reportedly duped of Rs 1.04 lakh by three people, who offered him an iPhone and a unique number, police said on Tuesday.

The three accused were booked under Section 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code, but no arrest has made so far, a senior police officer said.

As per the complaint filed by Dinesh Kalyani, who works as a sales executive, he received a message on his cell phone, purportedly from a mobile service provider, offering him an iPhone and a special number for Rs 1.04 lakh, said Sukhada

Narkar, Thane police spokesperson.

When Kalyani showed interest in the offer, the accused reportedly sent him an email, giving details of a bank account in which the payment was to be made, Narkar said.

Kalyani made the payment and received a call in which the caller confirmed the "booking". The caller also told him that the mobile phone and a new SIM card would be delivered to him shortly, Narkar added.

Few days later Kalyani did not receive his phone or number. Further probe is on.
