Cyber thugs have duped the manager of a nationalized bank and a consultant of a private dental college in the state capital.
Mahila Bank Manager Snehlata Singh has informed Hazratganj Police that between June 1 and 6, some unidentified miscreants withdrew 50 thousand rupees from her account.
“I came to know about the illegal withdrawal of money on June 6. These transactions are not done by me,” he said in his complaint.
He said that he did not receive any OTP nor did he receive any email for these transactions.
“I dialed the customer care service but they did not pick up the call and I had to report the matter to the bank through e-mail,” he said.
In the second case, Hanuman Singh of Indira Nagar told the SGPGI police that he had an account with a private bank branch located on the premises of the Dental College, where he worked as a consultant.
Singh said that he received a message on his phone on June 8 about the pending electricity bill and later a call.
He said, “The caller told me that my electricity connection would be disconnected if I did not pay the bill. He asked me to pay the bill online and asked me to share the OTP. After a while, I got Rs 48,000.
There was a message of being deducted. These amounts were taken as Rs.20,000 and Rs.24,000.
