My parents have a room in MHADA, Borivali area. A lady, who deals in MHADA rooms told us that she will sell our room, and will get us a FLAT in return, all we have to do is give her the amount we will get when we sell the room. And plus we will have to pay some more amount for new flat.
Agreeing to this, we sold the room, she gave us 6 lakhs cash for it. Next day she took those 6 lakhs back plus we gave her 2 lakhs more, total 8 lakhs. She said we will get a flat in a month. It has been 2 years now, she has not returned a single penny of those 8 lakhs, nor gave us a new flat.
I however, have the possession for that MHADA room, but she has taken the papers and signatures from my mother to transfer the ownership.
That ladys phone is off, no sign of her. All i have is on a stamp paper written that she has taken 8 lakhs from us, with her signature, and some blank cheques that she has given to us.
If we deposit those cheques, court will ultimately give her time to pay back, which she will never do, and she told us upfrontly that if u complain to the cops, your money is gone, she said she will give a share to cops and they will never investigate further.
After spending 8 lakhs, we dont have more amount to spend for hiring a lawyer and fighting a case, because ultimately she has kept her collar clean as its nowhere mentioned on paper that we sold her the room, its just mentioned that she has taken cash from us for some personal use.
WHAT IS THE SOLUTION FOR THIS SITUATION NOW? HOW CAN I GET MY MONEY BACK?
