Ranipur Calamity Fake Charity Donation Scam in Belagavi


“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.

ranipur-scamOne 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.

ranipur scamThe 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.

I left giving them nothing (although at first I was convinced and was about to offer them extra pair of clothes I got). A few people gave them money and their names were in the paper.

    PS: The paper where they have written about natural calamity, doesn’t have any signature or stamp. Its just a plain paper with a small description which is not any proof of evidence.

The girl came to my flat asking donation for the same reason as all above people mentioned, I gave her 100 rs. When I googled the place Ranipur, I found this page n immediately followed them and called Delhi police for the same. After following like 10 minutes they noticed me an started running away. In between I got a call from Delhi police and told them that I m following these ladies n they are trying to escape. Police told me no to give donation to them n asked me if they left the place or not. Till then those ladies have booked an e-rikshaw, I reached them n told that this is not right what they are doing and I have informed the police. they were very sa red and were asking to let them go, I couldn’t do anything more than that so I let them go. If someone encountered those ladies again please do not give any donations to them and ask some questions to them they will not stay there anymore. Thanks

  39. I’m from Raibag, Belagavi and have meet many women and girls distributing such pamphlets in rail.. They are all fake.. Be carefull

  40. Somebody knocked at my door around 08:00AM. The way how the person knocked the door was like somebody was in danger or something urgent happened and needed help. The knock on the door was so desperate. I opened the door half asleep and as soon as I opened the door , a young lady handed me a paper. She did not even say a word, she was like, take it, take the pen, and help. I couldn’t even read what written on the paper. All I saw was some names with the amount that they have donated. I handed over the paper to my roommate to read it and she read it. The moment she read what’s written on the paper, she handed over the paper to the lady and said I have seen so many of this fake donation request. Take your paper and leave. And he shut the door. I felt bad for the lady and I told my roommate why would he act like that. Then he told me that it was all fake. Still restless and not convinced I decided to look up the name of the village and calamaties the villagers are going through as mentioned on the paper (as explained to me by my roommate). Then I came across this article with almost the same content on the letter that they were using. I would say the lady was lucky that I was not aware of this, or else I will make sure that she is embarrassed in front of all the neighbors. It’s scary yet funny how someone can devalue themselves to this extend. I learnred my lessons.

  41. This has also started in Ahmedabad but my smart friend tried surfing on google infront of her about the rainpur village but she took the paper off from his hand and then we found this site.

  42. It happen to me in Guwahati,Assam i donated 30 INR. i saw the name list some even paid
    300-500 INR. They act like they don’t know languages.to avoid questions.

  43. my roommate just happened to be fooled by these a******s . happened in Noida, Uttar pradesh. beware of them. They say ” brother help us”. They speak with a very deep voice . you may feel that they may be really the victims. but just question them once. any id card or anything. they just happen to somehow speak some other language. and they just flee. two ladies and a small girl.

    all this happened when my security guard went for a break.

  44. It has been happened with me too today in the morning at Howrah, a district within West Bengal near Abasar Sammilani Club. This gang is collecting money by showing a paper to get help against natural calamity in Ranipur, Rajasthan. First I gave them money for help but when I asked them to show their Identity Card they were unable to show it and gave fake excuse and showed rude behavior also.
    I informed at local police station about them also and hope administration will take care of this cheater gang.

  45. This happens in Karbi Anglong too, I m the one to donate for the said charity of Rs 100.but as soon as I began to raise some questions to when and time she fled away. I brows for the name rainipur and I found this again.

    She was speaking english. No sindur. evry statement started with “brother”. I asked her if she was Hindu. But when I said I will give money and said she was a convert. she accepted it. These are Christian missionaries taking donations to convery more and more Hindus.
