Online Scammers Arrested Stealing Thousands of Dollars in Karachi

The latest police report, which still does publish by Tribune, says that three scammers were arrested in Karachi, Joharabad, on suspicion of using the internet to steal money.

According to the police investigation, the accused stole both international and domestic funds, including funds in Pakistan. Then, Inamullah, Muhammad Irfan, and Phillips Ansar take the name of the three scammers. So, when local police raid a tea hotel in Federal B Area Block 15 near the UBL Sports Complex Karachi, they do the arrest. According to the report, Inamullah works as the organization’s chief information technology strategist.

Said that these three used fake IDs to trick people into giving them their personal information and financial information. After that, they may log into the compromised accounts and move the money to their own. They also used fake paperwork to make their criminal enterprise look more legitimate.

Using this trick, the scammers allegedly stole thousands of dollars from people who didn’t know what was going on. During the raid in Karachi, the police not only arrested the three scammers, but also get several checkbooks, passports, laptops, and external hard drives.

The Cyber Crime Circle (CCC) in Islamabad recently caught 10 scammers who know how to make money in the same way. People steal people’s bank money while pretending to work at the bank.

The group would steal money from compromised accounts by using SIM cards from Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. The con artists cheated one person out of more than 3 million rupees and took thousands more from others.
