Gaming has become a vice of many youngsters, and in one such incident, a teenager played online games using his mother and grandfather’s money without their knowledge and lost Rs 36 lakh over a period of time.
The said teenager happens to be the resident of Amberpet. He happened to download a free fire gaming app on his grandfather’s mobile phone a few months back. Since he had access to his mother’s bank account details, he used to play with small amounts initially.
However, over a period of time, without the knowledge of his mother or grandfather, he started playing regularly and spent Rs 36 lakh on online games. The family finally came to know about his antics when they noticed that huge amounts had been withdrawn. The boy had withdrawn Rs 27 lakh from his mother’s account and Rs 9 lakh from his grandfather’s account.
The woman then approached the Hyderabad Cyber Crime police and lodged a complaint. “We are writing to the company informing about the complaint made by the family, and we will see what can be done in the case,” says an official from the Hyderabad Cyber Crime department.
