Mysore/Mysuru: Miscreants, who hacked the e-mail of a private company, have allegedly cheated a private company in city to the tune of 12,170 dollars (Rs. 10,06,343) by getting the said amount transferred to another Bank account.

The private company in city which has been cheated is DMS Technologies Pvt. Ltd. at Belavadi Industrial Area in city.

Details: DMS Technologies used to order ink from a private company named Jiangsu Kuang Shun Photo Sensitivity Material Stock (JKPSNMES) via its e-mail – [email protected].

On July 12, DMS Technologies sent an e-mail to JKPSNMES with a request to supply ink. But the miscreants, who hacked the e-mail of JKPSNMES, sent an e-mail to DMS Technologies stating that the Bank account has been changed and sent another Bank account details via e-mail to DMS Technologies. Believing the e-mail, DMS Technologies transferred 12,170 dollars to the bank account sent in the e-mail by fraudsters, thus getting cheated.

K.B. Mohan Raj of DMS Technologies has lodged a complaint in this regard.

Tricked through investment

In another case, a 28-year-old youth, who was tricked into investing Rs. 1.28 lakh by online fraudsters, has lost his money.

The youth, who was allegedly cheated by the fraudsters is C.A. Praveen Kumar of Hebbal 3rd Stage in city.

Praveen had received a link on his WhatsApp and when he clicked on the link, a page on Telegram App opened and he was provided certain tasks to be completed.
