FIA began an investigation into the fraudulent activities reportedly conducted by the company ‘Digitonics’. Investigative officers Mumtaz Hussain and others appear in court.
As per the details, FIA asked the court for time to submit a written response. Moreover, FIA also submitted the FIR before the court.
However, the court once again rejected FIA’s verbal plea to stop the proceedings immediately.
The court has sought responses from the parties on February 8.
What was in the FIR?
According to the FIR, Digitonics kept cheating local and foreign people by creating websites. The suspects used to withdraw money by stealing codes from the customers’ ATMs.
Moreover, Digitonics also harassed commissioners by blackmailing and extorting. They also kept using 12 bank accounts for fraudulent transactions.
According to the FIR, the suspect’s call center agents were also dealing with international customers through fake names.
FIA conducted a big crackdown against a company called Digitonics involved in International Scam earlier in January 2021.
According to the sources, after receiving complaints from different countries of the world, the FIA’s cybercrime team raided the office of Digitonics, after which all their assets were confiscated and their accounts were frozen.
A fraudulent company first designs its own product campaigns for international companies.
After selling them, it blackmails customers by declaring the same designs unregistered through another company.
