Mysuru: Three victims of online cheating got their money back, all thanks to Cyber Economics and Narcotics crime (CEN) sleuths.
The CEN police had received separate complaints by the victims stating that they had been cheated by fraudsters and their money had been transferred to bank accounts in different parts of the country.
While Rs 44,000 had been transferred from the credit card of complainant Rajnikanth from Choranahalli in Mysuru, another complainant, Sohan Jain from J P. Nagar, said he had transferred Rs 6,000 to a fraudster, who promised him a job. Another complainant, Mahadevaswamy, a resident of Vijayangar, said the fraudster had cheated him of Rs 25,000 online after convincing him to part with the OTP (One Time Password).
A press statement from the Mysuru City Police stated that based on the complaint the CEN police got in touch with the managers, nodal officers and legal team members of core banking of the banks to which the funds had been transferred and ensured that the accounts of the accused were frozen.
