Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Feb 27: It has come to light with inordinate delay that miscreants have succeeded in skimming the bank account details of three customers and siphoned off money from their accounts by using these details. Three such cases have been registered in the cybercrime police station here.

Abdul Ferman, who has account with Syndicate Bank Udupi, Sushma who has account with Bank of Baroda, Kolalagiri Brahmavar, and Mahesh Suvarna, an account holder of Canara Bank Kadekar, have lost their money.

The complainants have complained against those who swindled away money through cheating, and the banks which have been accused of not looking after the funds of the customers safely.

Rs 25,000 was withdrawn from the account of Abdul Ferman through an ATM at Bengaluru on November 1 7, 2020. Sushma's account was debited with Rs 6,000 without authorization on January 4 this year. A sum of Rs 33,300 was withdrawn from the account of Mahesh Suvarna from an ATM at Kodialbail Mangaluru, it is said.

The police have registered the complaints and have undertaken investigation.

    People have to be very careful till banks act on adding some security like OTP features when cash is withdrawn. There is an option added by the bank where people can activate the option of ATM , POS, and Online us of debit or credit card. You have to only activate when you want to use it and deactivate after use. So even if card is skimmed they cannot use it.
