Specially if you are meeting someone from Delhi. This happened with me last month on my trip to delhi. This is how it happened. I had an account on AFF and since i was about to visit Delhi, I decided to hook up with someone like minded. I met this mature woman on AFF whose profile said that she lived in Delhi with her parents and was a divorcee. She liked role plays and partying.
The language used in the profile was very good and reflected of an educated and mature person. So i told her the dates i was visiting Delhi. I even asked her if she wanted anything in return but she denied and said come have a nice time. So the date and timing were fixed. She told she knows a safe hotel near her house and i should come to her home first then we shall leave for hotel. So when i called her in the evening she asked me to come to Holambi near Bawana area in Delhi.
I was new so decided to pick a taxi. When i reached the area it was around 10pm. The area seemed like a typical slum and was very far on the outskirts of delhi. I got off the taxi and called her. She sent a house boy to pick me up from there.
Mistake 1 - did not suspect the location. Then we reached the her house cum office. The servant opened the lock with keys. As i entered the office, she was sitting in chair and reading magazine. She invited me to have a seat near her.
I had brought liquor so the servant prepared the pegs and we started drinking. But she kept on insisting me to keep on drinking. I downed three pegs which were of course large and started feeling dizzy.
She told me to take all the stuff upstairs to bedroom. So i obliged and went upstairs. However my stomach was curling and i started puking in the upstairs bathroom. After puking i came back to the bed and lied down. Suddenly another male besides the houseboy entered the bedroom with the woman. He came straight to me and slapped me hard on my face. My fate was sealed and thoughts started rushing to my head.
Then the houseboy came with a bamboo stick and started hitting me but the other guy interrupted. Still the houseboy kicked me in the face. My nose started bleeding and i started shivering. For now my life was at stake. I told them take whatever you want but leave me. But they wont budge. They took all my cash, watch, laptop and still wanted money.
They told me to transfer money in their accounts. Then they threatened me to give more money orelse they will send the pics to my parents and upload on my profile. This kept on till 4am in the morning. Then the guy slept while the woman and the lady kept a watch on me. She kept on cursing me and threatening me that they are going to kill me if i dont cough out 50k. Then the guys woke up at 10am and asked me give my atm cards with pin numbers so that they can withdraw cash from atm.
Only smart move since had i given the pin number too, i was gone. So we made a final deal, i would buy a mobile of 20k for them and then they would let me go. But the lady had kept my mobile phone with her and didnt give it to me. Three of us on a bike. Now these two guys started saying me to buy them mobile too and they will gurantee my safe return from this hell. This new guy seemed trust worthy. Bought three mobiles in all and gave them. Took whatever was left my phone, bag and wallet and left the place.
Called a taxi and went to hotal. Took taxi, went to airport and left Delhi. So this is my kind advise, be very careful while using online dating in big cities as goons are smart here.
They have a network and can do any harm they wish once you are in their trap. I left AFF ever since and never intend to use any such thing in future. Please dont meet people on places you are not familiar. Call them at common place where chances of swindling are lesser. Dont carry extra things, jwellery, electronics, etc. EDIT 1 - I have their photographs. Will they be of any benefit? I want to ensure that this never happens with anyone else.
Atleast not by this gang. The master planner is a deceiver. He seemed well learned and also runs a business of packaging in Delhi. No one can suspect him to be a goon at first sight. And i am sure I am not the only one they have swindled.
