The credit card of a Chinchpokli resident was allegedly cloned and used to make purchases worth lakhs of rupees at three stores in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Kalachowkie police said complainant Ketan Shah (40) was a manager with a private firm in Masjid.
He allegedly received several text messages from the bank last month, informing him of payments made using his credit card. Each payment was of Rs 30,000 to Rs 35,000 and at least six purchases were made, police said.
"Shah initially thought it was a computer mistake, but the messages continued till January 23 evening, after which he became worried. He then called the bank customer care and blocked his card. He later visited the bank and obtained a detailed statement of the purchases," said a police officer.
The statement showed purchases at a cellphone shop, garment store and a general store in Udaipur. Shah then approached police.
As he has not lost his credit card, he suspects it was cloned. Police are examining the bank statement and trying to determine the loss.
"We have registered a complaint of cheating under IPC and also invoked Information Technology Act. A team will soon leave for Udaipur and visit the places where the purchases were made," said senior police inspector Sunil Jain.
