    Glad they got caught. They need to severely prosecuted. Lots of innocent people would have been cheated by these pathetic scammers. Kudos to the police and the cyber crime police for nabbing these kind of people. There are still many out there doing similar dupe business and cheating people. Cyber wing should go behind all those as well. Again great job !!
