Mumbai: There is a warning news for all bank account holders. If your bank account is attached to your mobile number and children are playing games on their mobile phones, the money in your account will be lost. Because it happened to a vegetable seller in Mumbai. 3.5 lakh has been deducted from his bank account.
In this digital age, most consumers have linked their bank account with a mobile number. This means you do not have to go to the bank and stand for hours. A vegetable seller in Andheri sells vegetables all day long to feed his family. However, he has been withdrawing Rs 4,000 and Rs 6,000 from his bank account for the past eight months. So he lodged a complaint with the Mumbai Police Cyber Branch.
During the investigation, the police came to know that the money was deducted from the IP address of the mobile. Upon further investigation, the son was playing a game on his mobile phone. The name of this game is Free Fire Game, through which 3 lakh 40 thousand rupees were deducted from their account. So Savita Shinde, a senior police officer in the cyber cell, urged people to be vigilant.
So if you are giving your mobile phone to small children too, pay attention to the children to see exactly what the children are doing on the mobile. The Mumbai Cyber Crime Branch has challenged the vigilance of parents to reduce such incidents.
