    First of all the question should be raised to CT. Ravi . (indigenous)

    The fraudsters are not an ordinary brain, someone from IT knowledge and software back ground.
    Cybercrime police will surely succeed in tracing the culprits in shortest time laps.

    Dear Freinds,

    The bottom line is that Economic collapse and High Unemployment in Modi's New India has led to educated people resorting to crime as a last measure. If Modi - BJP continues in 2024 then educated youth will either have to sit with a begging bowl outside the new parliament or take up petty crime.

    Did they withdraw money without ATM card and PIN?
    As per my knowledge, ATM system gives money only if
    1) A valid ATM card is inserted
    2) The correct pin has been entered. (the system allows you to enter wrong pin only three times, so trial and error method doesn't work)

    Then how is it possible to withdraw money without ATM and pin?

    The cyber police and news reporters should followup the insident and report what actually happened. Nowadays even an uneducated use ATM for money transactions. Because of this kind of insidents, public become panic on using ATM.

    Good day N S Bhat,

    Now a days hackers attaching card readers devices and Camara for Copying PIN. Once card reader device collected data's it is not rocket science to make duplicate card. Its better to withdraw money from busy places rather than isolated place. Normally hackers not fixing their devices in Shopping mall / busy places.

    Banks can think to provide
    1) otp varification option during atm transaction.
    2) atm pin change option through net banking/mobile banking with proper security measures.

    I think, these measures may be solutions for camera fixing/card reader insertion frauds.

    Moreover the probing agencies should clearly bring to the notice of public how actually such fraud took place. Then the public can take personalized precautions.
