alabad has cracked down on a scam involving the popular online game PUBG Mobile. Two individuals were arrested for allegedly selling in-game accounts and defrauding unsuspecting buyers of hundreds of thousands of rupees.

The scam came to light after a complaint was filed against Hasan Shakir and Ameer Hamza. The complainant accused them of selling a fake PUBG Mobile account and swindling him out of a significant sum of money, reportedly Rs. 82,000.

Taking swift action, the FIA conducted three separate raids, resulting in the apprehension of the two suspects. They were booked under the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (PECA) for their fraudulent activities.

The report also mentions the arrest of another individual, Zaheer Babar, who is accused of blackmailing a woman by sharing objectionable content on social media. The FIA recovered objectionable material from his mobile phone during the investigation.

This incident serves as a cautionary tale for gamers who engage in buying and selling in-game accounts. These transactions often violate the terms of service set by the game developers and can be breeding grounds for scams.

It’s recommended that players avoid such practices and focus on earning in-game currency and items through legitimate means provided by the game itself.
