The Tech Outlook – Daily Tech News, Interviews, Reviews and Updates
The cyber police station in the capital’s south district busted a group that hacked the email of those who used their mobile numbers as their email password.  Using their mobile number as the email password, the accused would gain the credit card password and withdraw money.
Police have caught three scammers, among them a young woman who belonged to the organization.
According to the accused’s interrogation, more than 70 people have been scammed; nevertheless, the police claim that the number is in the hundreds. Police have also discovered five of the accused’s cell phones.
According to cyber police, Pinto Prasad, an Aliganj, Kotla Mubarakpur resident, reported having an SBI bank credit card in a police station complaint. He received two SMS about withdrawals from the card for Rs 25,000 and Rs 27,000 a few days ago. When he attempted to investigate the situation on his own, it was discovered that someone had stolen his email account and taken this amount of money using his credit card. A team led by SI Sunil Yadav and SI Vikas Sangwan, working under the direction of Inspector Arun Kumar Verma, began an inquiry after the complaint was filed.
The authorities, using data from Google, conducted their investigation and found that the victim’s email had been hacked and fraudulently used. In the course of their investigation, the police learned the accused’s mobile number. Lalit, Lakhan Kumar, and Rakhi, three residents of Uttam Nagar, were subsequently taken into custody by the police.
The suspect acknowledged to the interrogators that they had previously used individuals to get personal data from credit card customers. This included all of the personal information, including an email address and a mobile number. Then he would try to make a withdrawal from his credit card and send an email asking for it. The accused asserted that if they had used his mobile number as the email’s password, the bulk of the accounts would have been opened.
