New Delhi: 45,000 Suspicious Numbers Blacklisted in Cybercrime Cases
In most cases of cybercrime in Delhi-NCR, involvement of outside fraudsters has already been revealed. Now, investigating agencies have blacklisted about 45,000 suspicious numbers involved in such cyber incidents.
These suspicious numbers were identified within the last two years and were used to carry out cyber crimes in Delhi-NCR. This action of blacklisting is similar to the blocking of international mobile IMEI numbers of stolen phones by the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) under a project launched by the central government.
Mewat, the tri-junction area of Rajasthan-UP-Haryana, had the maximum number of active suspicious numbers. Cyber fraudsters from Mewat, Jamtara, Nagpur, North Rajasthan, South Bihar, and some areas of North East were found to be more active in cybercrime cases registered in NCR. The analysis of cybercrime cases in Delhi-NCR revealed that Mewati cyber fraudsters located on the Rajasthan-UP-Haryana border topped the list in sextortion and shopping fraud. In the case of E-SIM fraud and KYC fraud, the network of cyber thugs in Bihar-Jharkhand-West Bengal was found to be active.
Fake websites with numbers from North Rajasthan and South Bihar were used to dupe people in the name of jobs. It has also been discovered that people are being cheated through fake call centers in Delhi-NCR.
