Crime Patrol: Techie steals Rs 49L from 3 bank accounts in Chennai (Episode 162 on 05 Oct 2012)

The Inside Story

Software engineer arrested for bank fraud in Chennai

A 30-year-old software engineer was arrested in Chennai for helping a friend swindle Rs 49 lakh from customers of a private bank in the city. The accused, who worked for TCS eServe, had access to sensitive information of account holders as they handled the back-end operations of Citibank. She used her access to the account details to change the addresses of two customers, which misguided the bank to send credit and debit cards to the new addresses where proxies received them. The bank found some discrepancies and informed the software company, which later found that the data had been accessed from the accused's computer.

The accused was nabbed by the bank fraud wing of the Central Crime Branch from her house in Ashok Nagar based on the complaint of a senior TCS official. During interrogation, she confessed to having committed the offence and revealed that she was coerced into the crime by a friend who was in dire need of money. Police are now on the lookout for her accomplices and her friend who used the cards and made online transfers.

The accused had been working in the company for seven years after completing her master's in computer application. A TCS eServe spokesman said the employee has been suspended, and the incident has been reported to the police. The bank balances of the affected customers have been restored, and further action will be taken after the investigation is complete.
