In a case of credit card fraud, an unidentified man posing as a manager of a private bank duped an executive of a automobile company of Rs. 26,000 in February this year.


A case under the IT Act was registered in the Sector-10A police station on Saturday after investigation was conducted by the Cyber Crime Cell in Gurgaon.
According to the police, Dharmendra Purohit, deputy manager of an automobile company in Dharuheda and a resident of Sector 9A, said that he had an account with
ICICI Bank and a credit card with the same bank.

On February 24, he received a call and the caller introduced himself as a bank employee.

He claimed that Purohit’s credit card was being used by an unknown person and he needs to get his card blocked.
The victim fell prey and revealed his card number and password. After a few minutes, Purohit received a text message on his mobile that an amount of R26,587 has been transferred from his account.
