Assalam o alikum my dear pakwheel fellows/members
I was in a very depressed state in the past few months or so.I tried to live a life of continuous evasion but it took a toll in my heart.Always lived a life of modesty,never had any unrealistic desires.With a heavy heart i am sharing my experience.
It all started from this single moment.My father is a retired army officer.As you all know we are granted a plot in army schemes he also applied in a few and got an allotment.Paid the prerequisite expenses during his service and owned it atlast.It was an investment which took approx 30 years to build.
He sold the plot last year and invested in zaraj housing society,we were very happy finally well have a house of our own(lived in rented portions all our lives post retirement).He preferred buying in installments(though i have no idea what was running in is mind).We were never able to influence him in any ways being children and educated enough we tried to guide him to the fullest but were never heard.
Then something happened.Without even informing us he invested 4.8 million rupees in a food firm N.E group limited.As far as i know some of his friends advised him about it(they are also effected).The fraudster promised him monthly return on fixed investment for one year.Idk what was going through his mind.He had all the money for apartment but he still s invested(we were not informed).The guy gave him a cheque dated a year ahead of the full amount he invested.He received monthly payments for 3 months and then it stopped coming.In the mean time we were informed he has invested in some food firm.I was shocked.I asked him is there any written agreement of any sort?Have you cross checked the validity of firm.Does he have a ntn no. etc..What about the plants and addresses of the factories stated in business card.NOTHING.I was stunned,i asked him how could he invest such a large amount without any agreement and background check.I told him these returns were unrealistic.No organization runs this way.
I was ignored.ANd it happened.The money stopped coming and then my father suffered from a CVA/TIA stroke which rendered his right side paralyzed.Only after this we came to know what really happened.
The other party(his friends) were duped for 3.2mill rupees(their cheques bounced).I came to know when he had a verbal argument with his friends about what happened.
The fraudster is now in jail.He has duped other parties aswell.A case has been registered against him by some other parties.
Never in my dreams i though a fate like this will befall on us.I used to argue with my dad you trust your friends more than your own family.
This is a situation one cannot imagine.My father is now psychologically effected,his health is degrading day by day(he is a diabetic 16 years/enlarged prostate/chest congestion/weight loss).My mother is running the house and keeping it intact.We still live in a rented house living off on pension and some karaya we get from an apartment we own in KHI.(never saw it myself).My dad is unable to pay the rest of installments which i think ultimately will result in cancellation of zaraj apartment.One of my sibling is still studying
My father also gave money to his friends in need.A total of 0.9 million.One is unable to pay atm.Other i cannot trace
I want to imply here i am not a shut in.I am a NUST graduate engineer.I had plans of doing my MS from germany but after all what happened i cant do anything about it.As of now i am jobless.I never thought fate would come to such a halt.I am desperately trying to get employed and manage my house.
All proof he has is a checque.Dated to be cashed in july this year which ofc will be bounced.We never had any experience with law/court and kacherys.My father cant do anything now and i have no idea how the judicial system works.ANd all the lawyer bills who will pay for that?
I am appealing to my fellow pakwheel members,if someone is lawyer or someone can guide me about any legal proceeding i would be very obliged.I think its a lost cause but i would appreciate any help or guidance provided.Please come forward to help me in any sort you can
We come from a rural background,my father was the only commissioned officer in his family and my relatives from dad side are poor.My mamu's have clearly relayed its a lost cause but my question is why giveup without trying?
What is FIA/NAB for.Who is going to help us?
THat fraudster has no idea what awaits in hell.Bad dua kabi nahi di kisi ko main nay.Ab zabaan thakti nai hai bad dua detay huay us kaminay insaan ko.
Let this be a warning to all people.Do not invest in any local business in Pakistan.Safe investment is only in real estate(good housing schemes) nothing else.
Mera dil nai maan raha tha k main yeh baat yahan discuss karun.Majboor ho kar ab aap say share kar raha hoon.
