Man held for credit card frauds worth Rs1 crore

A con man from Maharashtra who cheated ICICI Bank customers by obtaining their credit card data has fallen into the Delhi police net after illegal online transactions of over Rs 1 crore in the past one year, said an officer on Sunday.

Raju Tevar was arrested last week by Delhi police from Palghar in Thane after he was tracked using his cell phone’s location, the officer informed.
In one of his illegal transactions, he used a Delhi woman’s credit card to pay Rs 44,911 electricity bill in his state, police said.

Police found his photograph on his account on Facebook, which was created with a fake identity of Raju Naik. Tevar was earlier acquitted in four criminal cases, including murder. He also spent 14 months in a jail in Maharashtra, police said.

He was misusing the data of around 4,500 credit card holders for the last one-and-half years, police said, adding that employees of the bank could be involved in leaking the data to him
Tevar was held on a complaint by Abhya Srivastava whose credit card details were obtained by the accused in April on the pretext of blocking her card by telling her that someone had made an online purchase from her card.
