Class 4 boy creates Paytm account for father, steals Rs 35,000 for online games

A Class 4 student had been withdrawing money from his father’s bank account by creating a Paytm account in his name. He withdrew Rs 35,000 in one year.

Class 4 student in UP capital Lucknow cheated his father and took out thousands of rupees from his bank account to play online games while the man went to the cyber crime cell over the unauthorised transactions.

The child, who is addicted to online video games, opened a Paytm account on his father’s mobile phone and managed to withdraw large sums of money. Unaware of his son’s role in these transactions, the father approached the cyber cell to lodge a complaint.

When the cops started an investigation, the cyber cell told him that the money was transferred using his own phone number. Both police and the man himself were left stunned.

When investigation started, at first no one raised any doubts about the child. However, with no other way possibilities, police talked to the child and after some time he spilled the truth.

Many online games require payment for download for which online payment is made mandatory. The boy figured out a way to make these payments. He quietly opened a Paytm account from his father’s phone in December 2018 and linked it to his bank account and transferred money to the Paytm wallet.

Initially, the father had no clue about these transactions as the amount was less. Soon, the child started using the Paytm wallet for more payments. Whenever the money in this Paytm wallet ran out, he would again transfer money from his father’s bank account. He took out Rs 35,000 from his father’s account in one year.

When the father took out a bank statement and looked at it, he spotted the discrepancies and suspected cyber fraud.

When police started investigating the matter, they realised that the mobile number of the Paytm account in which the money has been transferred is the same as the one linked with the bank account.

After the truth came out, the student admitted his mistake and was very scared. He was afraid that his father might beat him.

Police personnel at the Hazratganj station and cyber cell counseled the child for long and sent him home.
