I have heard the name of this guy named Ritwik Singh from people who has been doing it for a while now. I had filed a complaint 4 years ago about the matter, but there was no action taken. There was no response from the police or the cybercrime people."
Akshay further disclosed that the fraudster makes girls fall in love and asks them to send their nude pictures, so that he can misuse them. The actor received all the information in his DM. The info states that the man has extorted almost Rs 20-25 lakh till now by using Akshay Kharodia's identity. The Pandya Store actor said, "Problem is that my page is not verified yet on social media so people don't know who the real guy is. These guys who do such scams choose weak hearted people and I don't know why girls fall into such traps without talking to them on a video call or knowing them well."
Akshay Kharodia's mail is flooded with a lot of messages and emails. He revealed that the fraudster has been doing this act by fooling girls emotionally. He tells girls that his father is in police and he had a girlfriend who died in a car accident. Now, the actor has appealed to Mumbai Police to take strict action against him and asked girls not to fall into such a trap.
