A US woman named Cherish was duped into purchasing artificial jewellery valued at Rs 300 for massive Rs 6 crore by a shop owner in Rajasthan, Indian police have revealed. Cherish, who is a US citizen, bought what she believed to be silver jewellery with gold polish from a shop in Johri Bazaar, Jaipur. The deception came to light when she showcased the jewellery at an exhibition in the US in April, only to discover it was counterfeit.
After learning the truth, Cherish traveled to India to confront the shop owner. However, the owner denied any wrongdoing, prompting Cherish to file a police complaint in Jaipur. She also sought assistance from the US embassy, which has requested Jaipur Police to investigate the matter.
According to The Economic Times report, the officials have stated that Cherish met the owner, Gaurav Soni, through Instagram in 2022. Over the past two years, she paid Rs 6 crore for what she believed were genuine ornaments. The police are currently searching for Gaurav Soni and his father, Rajendra Soni, who are both on the run. "Special teams have been formed to trace the two men," an official confirmed.
The case has raised significant concerns about the authenticity of products sold to international buyers and the need for stricter regulations to prevent such frauds in the future.
