    The accused used various tactics like tele-calling, newspaper ads, and brochures to attract investors by falsely claiming ownership of lucrative properties. They showcased open lands in prime locations to victims, promising completion of projects within three years and offering commercial space for rent at promising rates.

    Despite assurances of high returns and property registrations, the company eventually stopped responding to investors, leaving them in financial and emotional distress. The fraud involved issuing bounced cheques and forging ownership documents, MOUs, and receipts to deceive victims.
