Vikas Jha, a resident of Muzzaffarpur, Bihar, a 27-year-old commerce graduate, has been arrested in Gurugam. He had committed “massive fraud” by duping more than 100 people in Delhi by getting their credit/debit card details.
135 cases of cyber fraud was registered against Vikas Jha only in the area of Delhi and Gurugram. According to police, more cases are expected to be lodged against him in coming days.
Jha was arrested in February this year and was granted bail in June for cheating a woman of New Colony of Rs 50,000 after getting her credit card details.
Police seized a laptop, three mobile phones, one debit card, three SIM cards and Rs 17.70 lakh cash at that time. According to the press, Jha lived in a rented accommodation in Tilak Nagar in West Delhi with his wife and son. He spent most of his money in travelling and on partying.
Jha never called the victims. He, with the help of two other people, hacked their email accounts and altered their registered mobile numbers so the bank customers did not receive the One Time Password (OTP) on the their registered mobile numbers, and get alerted.
He is considered as one of the most notorious fraudsters in the Delhi- NCR region and has confessed to duping people mostly working in corporate sectors.
