Three fraudsters, including a former employee of Paisabazaar, were arrested by the Delhi Police on Thursday, for duping ICICI Bank customers. Based on a complaint filed by one Harish, who is a resident of Delhi’s Kali Bari area, a case was registered on April 7.

The victim received a call on February 21 from a person, who claimed to be an employee of the ICICI bank. The man told the victim that he will help him activate his ICICI bank credit card. While on the call, the man asked for a one-time password (OTP) from the victim, after which a total of Rs 1,45,000 was debited from his account.

During the course of the investigation, police found a person identified as Vivek. However, his address could not be ascertained. On April 13, a raid was conducted in Delhi’s Patel Nagar, and a team apprehended accused Vivek Bind, 23, who was said to be a resident of Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi.

Accused Vivek Bind said to the police that he is a Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) graduate and was working with Paisabazaar, which is an online marketplace for financial products. He further claimed, at Paisabazaar, he obtained data of different bank customers, who applied for credit cards or got one recently.

Vivek, along with his two other associates and roommates, identified as Vishal and Jacky, used to call customers unofficially, on the pretext of helping them to activate their credit cards. Then, they would ask for the customers’ complete login credentials, and after logging into their accounts, they would use the CRED App to transfer money from customers’ bank accounts to their accounts.

Based on the complaint by accused Harish, the accused Vivek’s accomplices — Vishal and Jacky Yadav — were also arrested from Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh.
