However, the application requires users to scan their faces and blink during the approval process. But, because his lover is dead, those procedures can not be done.
In addition, the application also detects the recorded sound that does not belong to the identity’s owner. Because of this foul, the loan company has to manually check its tenant.
The worker found a bruise with a red mark on his neck. Then he notified the authorities regarding this information. Since then, the man suspected of killing his lover was arrested. This man was found stealing money worth 4,200 US dollars from the victim’s account.
In addition, the man who was suspected of murdering was also found using his victim’s cellphone. He told the victim’s parents and to tell the parents of his lover and his workplace that the victim was on a trip.
