Major financial scam surfaces, loans provided through mobile apps to play cyber games like rummy

rummy-

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The details of loans with unlawful interest rates through mobile apps to play cyber games including online rummy have surfaced. Apps make it easy to play on credit if you don't have cash on hand. The loan is available within minutes for daily interest rates. When the money runs out, you can borrow again. In between online games, advertisements for loan apps and social media are used to deceive young people.

VH Vineeth, a contract employee of ISRO, committed suicide after incurring a debt of Rs 25 lakh. It is learned that Vineeth took a loan through an app to play online rummy. This is in addition to borrowing from friends. When the loan was not repaid, the lending company sent a message to friends and colleagues insulting Vineeth, including a photo of his. This created quite an impact on Vineeth. Vineeth's brother clarified that the executive of the loan app had come home.

Hooliganism in case of non-repayment
