Film producer Boney Kapoor falls prey to cyber fraud; loses ₹3.82 lakh
Fraudulent transactions of around ₹4 lakh occurred by allegedly using the credit card of Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor.
As per the complaint, ₹3.82 lakh was transferred from Kapoor’s account in five fraudulent transactions on February 9.
A case has been filed at the Amboli police station in Mumbai on Wednesday under relevant sections of the Information Technology Act.
Kapoor came to realize that money had been withdrawn from his bank account and he enquired the bank about this. Following this, he lodged a written complaint with the police.
The producer told the police that neither anyone asked for his credit card details nor did he get any call in regards to this. Police officials suspected that somebody had acquired the information while Kapoor was using the card.
