A former State Bank of India (SBI) employee was arrested for credit card fraud. Parambat Daleel (30) alias Daleel Roshan, a native of Nilambur in Malappuram, was detained by Vazhikkadavu Police Inspector Manoj Parayatta. The accused was responsible for distributing credit cards to customers through an SBI credit card bank channel.
Fraud was done using the credit card and mobile phone of the customers who came to cancel the credit card at the bank’s branch. Daleel duped these customers and obtained their login ID, password, email ID, and the OTP received on the customer’s mobile phone. He would then enter the customer’s credit card information in the various payment applications installed on his mobile phone and transfer the maximum amount to different bank accounts.
Daleel added fictitious email IDs and mobile numbers to the customer’s credit card information. This prevented customers from receiving credit card statements and bank messages. After one week, the accused would again approach the duped customers on the pretense of knowing the credit card cancellation request update. This method helped him understand if his victims were suspicious or not.
Daleel was arrested for robbing one lakh and twenty thousand rupees from a Manjeri Hospital employee, a native of Vazhikkadavu. During the investigation by the police, it was found that the accused had cheated many people while working at different places in the Malappuram district similarly. He mainly cheated women customers.
Credit card fraud-related cases have been registered against Daleel at various stations in the district. After news of his arrest, similar complaints against him started to emerge. He stole Rs.62,400 from an Anganwadi teacher in Wandoor using her canceled credit card and Rs.120,000 from a Kerala State Electricity Board employee. He duped five teachers from a school in the same region.
Daleel defrauded lakhs using the customers’ credit cards and transferred the amount to his various accounts. Following customer complaints, he was dismissed from the bank at the end of 2022. That did not prevent him from cheating the customers by falsely claiming to be an SBI Credit Card Bank employee.
Police investigation revealed that the credit card information of various district government officials had been fraudulently used by the accused. Customers do not realize that SBI charges its credit card users an annual fee. Most of Daleel’s victims were the ones who arrived to cancel their cards since they did not want to pay such yearly charges. Daleel was living a luxurious life using the money obtained through fraud.
Malappuram District Police Chief Sujith Das IPS received secret information that Daleel was hiding near Gundlupet on the Kerala Karnataka border using a fake identity. Inspector Manoj arrested the accused while trying to escape from the country using a new phony passport. The accused was produced in Nilambur Court and remanded to Manjeri Sub Jail.
I agree, but whenever you receives call from the concerned marketing people they would say that they are calling from state bank of India and would pretend to be SBI employees.
SBI Cards hires a manpower agency to market it’s products through SBI Bank branches. You need to do some hard work and verify facts from both sides and publish the report.
Kindly verify the facts before before posting.
The culprit is not an SBI employee, SBI credit cards is a separate company and it outsources staffs from manpower providers like Teamlease,Randstad etc.
