“After two weeks of talking to her, he claimed he was coming to Mumbai from Canada. He later said he was at Delhi Airport and needed to exchange $40,000, but he did not have the Indian currency to pay the tax for the same. He then asked her to send the required amount, which was Rs 3.59 lakh.

“Once he got the money, he switched off his mobile phone and did not reply to the woman’s messages. So, she registered a case with the Kasarwadavli police station and accordingly the cyber cell started the investigation,” said a senior official from Thane police.

The Thane cyber-crime investigation led the arrest of Earnest.

He was arrested on August 9, in a Honda Civic car, with two forged passports and one original was found in his possession.

“We got the mobile number and other details and found him to be in Gurugram. With the help of local police, we reached his building and waited for him downstairs,” said Sanjay Sawant, senior police inspector, Thane cyber crime.

“He was arrested on August 9, around 9.30pm. We also found a Honda Civic, which he bought from the woman’s cash. He had two forged passports and one original. When we checked his phone, we found that he was in the process of cheating more women.
