A SIM card operator in India was able to successfully forge fingerprints by downloading Aadhaar credentials from a local government website.P Santosh Kumar, a distributor of Vodafone prepaid SIM cards, scanned these prints and printed it on a polymer using a special printer that he purchased online.After getting a fingerprint scan on the polymer, the polymer was then placed on the eKYC machine to activate SIM cards on different names.Using these details, he activated over 6,000 SIM cards within a month to get a commission from the telecom company.However, due to the excess usage from a single machine, the UIDAI authorities felt that something was wrong and, therefore, initiated a probe, leading to his arrest.On interrogation, Santosh Kumar confessed he resorted to the fraud to get maximum commission from the telecom service provider for activating SIM cards.
