NEW DELHI: Police have arrested a 24-year-old petrol pump attendant for allegedly scamming people by creating a copy of their credit/debit cards and, then, emptying their accounts. The accused, Manish alias Monu, is a resident of Dakshinpuri in southeast Delhi. His two other aides, Gagan and Subhash, are on the run.
After multiple complaints were received at Ambedkar Nagar police station, probe revealed that in all the cases, the card had recently been used at a fuel station in Dakshinpuri. Sleuths scanned CCTV footage and their finger of suspicion fell on Manish. On questioning, he admitted to the fraud. He would swipe the cards on a skimming machine before returning it to the customer. Details of the card were then copied by his two aides, who would create a duplicate copy of the card. The accused would scan the account details of prospective victims, but target only those who had healthy bank balance.
