Scam in the name of upstox international accounts

Hi guys there is a scam going on in the name of upstox securities, where they introduce them self as upstox staff. They ask you to join the community group where they suggest you to buy UC stocks, block trading and IPO recommendation. The app looks same like other apps. Shows exact and accurate details. In Start they give you greediness of bonuses, withdrawals and deposits will be very smooth. They ask you to vote for CIO Dr Aravraj gupta as some international stock competition is going and he distinguish him self as Chief investment officer of upstox securities which is completely bogus and fake. Be aware of this app as its newly trending in market which i completely lost more than 5lakhs. Thought of sharing to others as a awareness. App link
Stock :warning:.

Hello Everyone,
Like some of you here, I fell prey to such a scam in the name of Upstox and have a lost a large amount. Unfortunately, I could not check this thread because for me things started on 25th May 2024. Below are the details:

  1. I came across a WhatsApp channel name in Facebook for investment in stocks via Official Upstox Community (the frauds used the name of Upstox).
  2. After joining the channel namedA105 Upstox official stock community (group admins: +91-95027 05319 and +91-91059 87997), they asked me to vote for Dr. Aravraj Gupta, the chief investor of Upstox for some competition.
  3. After I voted they credited Rs. 4,000/- to my account and asked me to participate in an IPO by investing Rs. 1,30,000/-.
  4. They promised with 5 IPO subscription, I will get 500% return.
  5. The above promise was true; I invested in 5 IPOs (around Rs. 25.78 lakh), checked their share price in Google and indeed the share prices increased.
  6. Afterwards, I denied to participate in IPOs and rather expressed my interest in UC stocks only.
  7. At this point of time, money inflow from my bank account stopped to them because I already had Rs. 1.02 Cr. which was enough for intraday UC stock tradings.
  8. I asked for withdrawal last week; they cited that your credit score is less, so you must pay some money boost the score. Now, I paid the Rs. 1.2 lakh as the last amount on 4th July 2024 and created 3 withdrawal applications for a total of Rs. 28 lakh.
  9. Then all communications in their WhatsApp channel and 2 so-called dedicated customer service numbers (+91 75794 48433 and +91 72478 07969) stopped responding from yesterday.
  10. The website still works, but it will stop soon.

I have raised a complaint with Cyber crime department. Please spread this awareness so that someone else will not fall prey to the seamsters.

Hi @Harish_Kumar ,

Thank you for sharing the WhatsApp group link with us. We have shared this with our team internally for further investigation.

I came here today on this platform to inform that I have also been frauded a huge sum of money by this people. I have already registered a complaint with the cybercrime department. They lured me in some WhatsApp group by giving me chance to be a VIP member and enjoy the benefits of few recommended IPOs by telling that I will get them at a discounted rate and having returns of 600%. Also, I was told to vote for some international stock competition and vote for Dr. Avaraj Gupta, CIO of Up Stox and this voting will be going on till 5th August. After I deposited the amount, because initially some high returns were shown to me so I thought it was authentic, IPOs were registered in my account. After I was trying to sell, I was told that it has got a holding period of 15 days. But suddenly all their communication were cut off and now their website is unavailable.
I am requesting Up Stox to take action against them as I am seeing many people are being frauded by them.
