“We are inhabitants of Ranipur Village are dressed to natural calamities and have lost our house and property. We are not standing for food and oven clothes to were- are requesting your good self to kindly help us generously and we have to shelter to live” …..
This is the sheet of a paper a Young girl hands over to a person which only has the above text and then some names and amount as donations normally about 5-6 and amount in 500, 300 etc.
One woman was seen in Ramdev Galli, and when we verified this we came to know that such fake charity scams have been taking place in name of Ranipur village since long.
As son as we asked some tough questions she ran away.
There were also two young girls in school uniform who could be part of the same gang and also there was a man whom we could not trace but was often seen around in Ramdev galli doing rounds up and down.
The http://hashtivist.blogspot.in/ writes that As to my curiosity, just after they left, I searched “Ranipur village” and got to know the village is in Uttar Pradesh and another in Uttarakhand, so no Ranipur in Rajasthan then.
Then I typed “Ranipur calamity” and stumbled upon two results related to a scam which had the same exact thing written as that on the paper.
The telegraphindia also writes about a similar incident saying – A 25-member group from Rajasthan, including minor girls involved in allegedly duping tourists in the name of social help, was rescued by a voluntary organisation in Bodhgaya.
Such scams are not new but the citizens must be careful and also the use of young girls for this is very alarming.
