All of 25 years, this is multitasking conman who had duped hundreds of unsuspecting people. An ex-banker, this man was running as many as three conman acts at the same time. However, his "successful" side business came to an end after the South Delhi Police arrested Naveen Kumar on Thursday.

According to the police, Kumar was running a fake 'friendship club', along with duping people to pay for non-existent credit card bills and counterfeit placement agency.

"He used Chinese cellphones with software that automatically converted male voice into female voice. He used these phones to call people and lured several people into depositing fixed amount into various bank accounts," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H.G.S. Dhaliwal.

The police said that after his victim submitted the money he would quickly change his cellphone number and again start his operation.

According to the police, Kumar, after stealing top-secret data from HSBC Bank, SBI, ICICI, ABN Amro and Barclays Bank, used the same to call and negotiate with customers.

"He would pressurize and threaten them with legal actions if they did not pay their bills. He duped several customers who were already into litigation and dire crunch of money," added Dhaliwal.

Dhalival said the accused was also running a placement agency from East of Kailash, by publishing advertisement in the various leading national newspapers.
