According to police, the victim Nagamani, resident of Kukatpally, got a call from the IT firm IBM. She had applied online to an ad posted on monster.com, a job portal. After clearing the telephonic interview, she was asked to deposit `80,000 to a bank account to clinch the job at IBM. After the amount was deposited Nagamani also received  an offer letter.
