LUCKNOW: The quest to enrich his general knowledge through a mobile app proved costly for a 27-year-old engineer as the app turned out to be a ‘trap’ by cyber fraudsters.
The fraudsters stole the youth’s photos from his mobile phone through remote access, morphed them with obscene pictures and blackmailed him before duping him of Rs 3.5 lakh.
In September, the victim, a resident of Sarojininagar, was surfing Facebook when he came across an ad on a GK app. The engineer told police that he downloaded the app and gave all permissions, including access to his phone gallery and contacts.
In the FIR, the complainant said the miscreants got access to his mobile phone and stole his photographs before morphing them with objectionable pictures.
The police have lodged an FIR on charges of extortion, cheating and dishonesty and IT Act.
