The arrest of a 17-year-old hacker in Kazeron
Col. Esmail Zareyan, the police chief of Kazeroon, said about the arrest of the teenage boy: “After being arrested, the accused confessed to withdrawing about 150 million tomans from 500 bank cards of the citizens and was presented to the judicial authorities for legal procedures.”
The story is that this 17-year-old boy defrauded 500 people and withdrew 150 million Tomans from their account by sending a fake text message of Sana (Iranian Judiciary System) in Kazerun. After citizens complained to FATA police, he was identified and arrested.
After this issue, Colonel Zaremen pointed out the importance of the text messages that citizens receive and emphasized that they should inform the FATA police if they encounter any suspicious content, programs or messages in cyberspace.
After several citizens approached and complained to the FATA police and registered a court case regarding the illegal withdrawal of money from the bank account of these people, after receiving a fake text message of the judicial electronic notification, the special experts of the FATA police investigated and found the accused.
After reviewing the files and technical measures, the experts found out that the unauthorized withdrawals were made after receiving the SMS of judicial electronic notification. After that, the accused was identified and arrested in his hiding place after coordinating with the judicial authorities.
However, the 17-year-old boy has done something illegal and fraudulent, but there is a possibility that such teenagers will become white and useful hackers for the country who move towards technological knowledge. We have to wait to see if this issue will be taken into consideration or will be treated like other normal criminal cases.
