You have 2 remedies i.e. Civil and Criminal. 1. You may file consumer complaint before the District Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission of the area where you reside under the Consumer Protection Act, 2019. AND 2. You may also file FIR u/s 420 IPC in the police Station. The complaint is filed in the area where the offence has taken place. In the present case, you may file FIR where money was given/transferred.
