HYDERABAD: The Rachakonda cyber crime police on Friday arrested two persons from Jharkhand who have been helping cyber fraudsters by providing their bank accounts to use them for fraudulent money transactions.
In November last year, one B Lingaswamy of Yadagirigutta lodged a complaint with the Rachakonda cyber crime police that a stranger had called on his mobile number seeking information about the CVV number and one-time password so as to update the card.
But, after sharing the number, Lingaswamy received several messages on his number for deduction of `98,000 from his SBI bank account. During probe, the police verified the transaction details and found that the money was transferred into e-wallets and then to the account numbers of two persons from Jharkhand.
The duo identified as Shankar Mandal (26) and Md Bablu Ansari (25), who were working as agents in providing bank accounts were arrested and brought to Hyderabad on transit warrant by Rachakonda police.
Cyber crime Additional DCP D Janaki said that the prime accused in the case are yet to be nabbed and advised the public not to share the details of debit and credit cards to the strangers, who call on the pretext of updating the details with the bank.
