Victim of fraudulent fake BSNL BharatFibre Connection

My friend was looking for BSNL fibre connection for better connectivity for work from home . We found one online no. which claims to provide fibre connection. The person was a guy impersonating as bsnl fibre connection dealer. We contacted him on whatsapp and on call, he provided us the softcopy of broshure , which looks like original bsnl broshure with plans.

We finalized a plan of4500? with unlimited data for 6 months. The dealer then asked my friend to pay 4500? to his number and assured that the connection to be completed on the next day.
After receiving the payment, he asked to pay additional 2575. My friend then suspected fraud and checked online to find about scam activities going on. Since then the person is not receiving his phone call. I called the dealer from my number and asked him to refund the money. He replied that he will have to do some process and it will take 15 days for the refund. Since then he is not picking my phone.

I would request you to please look into this issue and help us to get the money back and save others as well.

I have attached copy of invoice which was generated for my friend .

    My dad became victim of this scam and paid over 10k.
    It’s a shame that government organization reputation can be destroyed like this.
    Still these people are doing fraud don’t know what officials are doing.
    How they let someone operate fraud operations in name of government organization.
