The Cyber Crime Police arrested a person, who allegedly used the documents pertaining to another person to apply for a credit card, through which he spent about Rs. 1.5 lakh. The fraud came to light when the victim was called by the bank authorities to pay the bill.
The arrested was identified as G Chenna Reddy, resident of Darsi mandal in Prakasam district.
According to Cyber Crime Inspector Gopinath, Chenna Reddy is friend of complainant Kakumani Sudhakhar, resident of Chinagadili area of the city, and had applied for a credit card allegedly by using his photos, documents, which he got from him through email on the pretext of surety for his loan.
Chenna Reddy allegedly got the credit card and spent Rs. 1.58 lakh and failed to repay the same. Since the credit card existed on the name of the complainant, the credit card bill collection executive called Sudhakar to pay the bill, which left him in shock.
After coming to know that an unknown impostor opened a credit card on his name by using his documents with forged signatures and fake identity proofs, he lodged a complaint with the cyber crime police.
On Friday, police acting on a tip-off arrested Chenna Reddy and sent him to judicial custody.
