Youth uses uncle’s debit card to ‘purchase’ his own phone online
It was a smart crime involving a smart phone that was caught on the web. A youth, who used his uncle’s ATM/debit card to buy his own cell phone from a shopping website, was caught by the cyber crime cell, Hazratganj a couple of days ago. He had posted his Samsung Galaxy S-III for sale on the shopping website — www.ebay.in — that facilitates online sale and purchase of mobiles, gadgets and other stuff.
Complainant RS Srivastava (the youth’s uncle) received an SMS alert on his cell phone at 5.27pm on October 4 that his SBI account debit card had been used for purchase of a phone worth Rs. 25,000.
