Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - HT NAVI MUMBAI -

Ear­lier, af­ter tak­ing your per­sonal de­tails, fraud­sters would trans­fer your money to their bank ac­count, which was easy to trace for the po­lice. But, nowa­days the new modus operandi is to do on­line shop­ping and pay bills, which makes it dif­fi­cult for po­lice to trace the fraud­sters. “Fraud­sters use var­i­ous on­line shop­ping meth­ods, in­clud­ing m-pesa, a way to pay bills on­line; e-wal­let, for book­ing In­dian rail­way tick­ets on­line; SBI buddy, to trans­fer money or pay bills,” said a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer from Thane com­mis­sion­er­ate.
