PUBG Mobile; grandson spends without permission, details

As per Indian Express, a PUBG Mobile user spent a large amount from the pension account of his grandfather on in-game items. The 65-year old retired BSNL employee received a message in May that his account only had Rs 275 left. He immediately filed a complaint with the police and the Cyber Cell for the North district. The case transferred to Cyber Cell this month and the investigation found that his 15-year old grandson was behind it. The culprit transferred about Rs 2,34,497 from the pension account to a Paytm account between March 7 and May 8. Also Read - PUBG Mobile India could reportedly release on this date

According to the report, Anton Alphonse, the DCP for North district issued a statement. Alphonse noted, “The complainant said he received a message on his phone from the bank on May 8.” The investigation noted that the bank sent OTP messages to the 65-year old, but he did not find any OTP message while checking. This means that the grandson deleted all the OTP and bank messages to hide the theft. Also Read - 43 Chinese apps banned in India removed from Google Play Store, App Store
