Crooks hack into export company, email ids, dupe client of $31,000: A leading export house in the city has approached the cyber cell of Delhi Police after some unidentified crooks hacked into the company’s email ids and duped their clients by sending them mails on their behalf. The crooks have even managed to get $31,000 from one of its clients.

A case under section of fraud and Information Technology Act has been registered by the crime branch. “Till now, cyber criminals had been targeting individuals. But this shows that an extremely organized gang is committing crimes on an international level,” a source said. Investigations have also revealed that while one set of criminals operate from Delhi, their counterparts operate from London, a source said.
