New Delhi: Jamtara is a popular web series about cybercrime. This is a true story based on the homonymous tribal district of Jharkhand called ‘Jamtala’. The popular show seemed to show how most of the teens and youngsters were indulging in cybercrime by sending fraudulent calls and messages from accounts across the country. The Nexus was very deeply entrenched throughout the district, luring in teenagers and young adults, grabbing huge sums of money and siphoning hundreds of thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In a new case similar to Jamtara, the group allegedly defrauded the director of a security services company and looted Rs.500,000 in fraudulent transfers. According to reports, the scammer made the transfer without asking for a one-time-her-password (OTP). They fraudulently withdrew Rs 50,000 from him by giving him repeated missed calls on his cell phone.
The incident occurred on October 10th. Between 7:00 pm and 8:44 he missed a call from the director of a security services company. He answered some calls and ignored others. He looked at his phone to see if his RTGS deal worth close to Rs 50,000 had arrived. The target finds many texts from the bank telling them about the transaction. A series of fraudulent RTGS transactions totaling over Rs 50,000 were made from a man’s company checking account.
