Cyber crime happened on E-commerce site Clickhubli.com. The website www.clickhubli.com delivered online flowers and gifts all over India since 2001. I have similar sites like clickhubli.com which deliver flowers and gifts all over India. The orders are processed through payment gateway provided by a CCNOW payment gateway based in USA. We received 3 orders in the month of August and September 2008. All the 3 orders were placed by Mr.Reji Abraham ,6439,Market Street, Upper Darby, PA 19082,ph no : 0091 9815851068.
All the 3 orders were placed for delivery to
Ms.Komal Goel, HOUSE NO.28/1,U BLOCK,DLF PHASE, GURGAON, HARYANA 122001 Phone: 971 845-9849
We delivered following mobile handsets to her The details are:
SONY P1i(Blackberry) $527.00 USD on 31/08/08
SONY K790i $303.00 USD on 11/09/08
Nokia N82 mobile handset $512.00 USD on 22/09/08
These mobile handsets were booked by Mr.Reji Abraham The payment was done but later on it was charged back to us on December 18th by CCNOW. The sender claimed that he has not done this transaction by his credit card. So we did not get any payment for the 3 orders.
After the chargeback also, the same fake orders were coming on the site. This time we received 2 orders which were for mobile handsets. One of the order had come from the same e-mail ID : firstname.lastname@example.org So Ms.Deepali got a doubt that somebody is placing order from India and cheating us. Ms.Deepali traced the i/p address of the computers from where she received the orders and she got confirmation that the orders have come from India only.
Then She gave FIR against the unknown person to Hubli police station. Hubli-Dharwad police commissioner Mr.Shivakumar did a great help by taking immediate action and sent police to chandigarh. An empty parcel was handed over to the police and They were told that they have to go as a courier person. Meanwhile Ms.Deepali called the recipient Sahil Sharma and told that he will receive the mobile today. She requested him to receive it himself but he refused to do so and sent his friend. Still police could manage to catch the criminal Sahil Sharma fromchandigarh who was a student from hotel management college. The further story is as follows:
The following news appeared in yahoo news. Chandigarh, Jan 9 (IANS) A 20-year-old student has been arrested on the charge of using credit cards of other people for online shopping, a police officer said here Friday. The student of hotel management, Sahil Sharma, is the son of a senior Haryana government official. His mother is a leading architect there. Sahil was arrested late Thursday evening after a joint operation was launched by the cyber crime investigation cell of Chandigarh and Karnataka police.
Sahil Sharma used credit card numbers of people staying in the US and the UK to make online purchases. He usually bought expensive mobile handsets,' Deputy Superintendent of Police (crime) K.I.P. Singh told IANS. He said Sahil ordered three mobile phones worth Rs.150,000 from a Karnataka-based online portal of gift deliveries clickhubli.com. Sahil, who was in a Gurgaon hotel in August 2008, allegedly wrote in an e-mail that he was Reji Abraham, a resident of the US. The mobiles were delivered to him at the hotel.
But when the amount was deducted from the account of real Abraham, he filed a complaint with the company saying that he never placed any order. Enthused by his success, Sahil again placed orders with the same portal in the name of Shiela Lane from Britain and Kerrie Sheldon from the US, the police alleged. He gave the addresses of his college and home for the delivery of ordered mobile phones. 'We sent a decoy courier boy to make a delivery at Sahil's residence in Sector 23 and caught him red-handed while accepting the parcel,' Singh said.
The owner of the portal had approached the Karnataka police Dec 31, which laid the trap jointly with Chandigarh police and nabbed him. Sahil worked for an international call centre in 2006 where he used to sell mobile phones to international customers and note their credit card numbers for the company's record.
From there he managed to get these credit card numbers for fraudulent use,
