Renewal of ATM card results in loss of 85K

Despite many news articles, announcements, paper alert and even messages over phone, people are still falling prey to fraudulent calls and losing their hard earned money.  Gajendra Jain s/o Basantilal Jain suffered a loss of Rs. 85 Thousand as he gave his ATM PIN details to an impostor over a phone call.

Gajendra Jain received a call on 6th January from an unknown person who pretended to be a representative of SBBJ.  This imposter informed Gajendra Jain that his blocked ATM card could be renewed.  Since Gajendra’s card was not working, he believed the man and gave him the ATM PIN. After some time, Gajendra got a message on his phone about the withdrawl of 85 thousand rupees. The impostor had taken away the amount online from Gajendra’s account.  A report has been filed against the unknown person in Surajpole Police Station in Shivaji Nagar.

IMPORTANT– We would like to draw the attention of all to the fact that these kind of calls are not made by any bank and not even senior officers would ask for anybody’s PIN whether on phone or in any other way.  Please do not encourage such calls and do not come under any kind of temptation of becoming rich in no time as such calls will only give you monetary losses.  No one becomes rich by giving bank details to any third person.  Also, please be aware of the fact that such phone numbers are almost difficult to trace and even police will not be able to help you in this matter.  So, once again, please do not give your bank details or any kind of details to any unknown person over phone, not even to call centers promising benefits on purchasing life insurance policy.  Make your payments only yourself or through extremely reliable sources.  No company sends money collectors from their offices without proper intimation.  Please be very careful.
