From where it all started:

On May 19, the aged got a friend request on facebook from a lady named Jenny Anderson. He accepted it. They started talking and soon Jenny asked to exchange the numbers. The day they exchanged the numbers they started talking through whatsapp.

On day 29th, he received an unexpected call from her that she is visiting India just to meet him.”Jenny said she would board the flight on June 1 and will land to Mumbai. From Mumbai she will take the connecting flight to Delhi. She also said that she is visiting India not only to procure her gold but she wanted to see me.
