Man Leaves Phone At Home, Guest Shops Online For Rs 13,000 | Noida News
NOIDA: A 23-year-old man has lodged a police complaint alleging that a guest who had come to stay with him last month had used his phone number to make online transactions of Rs 13,300 when the victim was not at home.
The complainant Akash Kumar, a resident of Munger in Bihar, stays in a rented accommodation in Wazidpur village in Greater Noida. He works as an apprentice in Lava Mobiles and shares his accommodation with two friends — Pramod Patel and Anand Patel. All three roommates work at the same place.
Kumar said Anand’s uncle Sagar Patel had visited them last month. “Patel had come from Madhya Pradesh and stayed at our room for a few days. Our company does not allow mobile phones or wallets at workplace. So, we have to keep them at home,” he said.
Kumar alleged that Sagar had seen him keeping the mobile phone and debit card in a bag in the room.
“My friends and I went for work while the guest stayed at home. There was no pattern lock on my phone and it was easy for him to open it. He used my debit card details and the OTP that was delivered to my number to make the transactions. But he took care to delete the messages from the bank,” he said.
According to Kumar, the transactions had been made on March 13, 14 and 16 and Rs 13,300 was withdrawn from his account in total. As the text messages had been deleted, Kumar did not suspect any foul play for weeks. One day, he opened his phone and found his normal SIM card cropped into a micro one. Sensing something amiss, he visited the bank and found about the three transactions.
“When the transactions were made, my roommates were with me at work,” he said. When confronted, Patel left the room in a hurry, he alleged.
Pankaj Rai, the SHO of Sector 58 police station, said they had registered a case of cheating under Section 420 of the IPC.
