In a rather disturbing incident, a woman lost Rs 1.2 crore due to cybercriminals. It is known that cybercriminals are resorting to various stunts and schemes these days to withdraw huge amounts of money from bank accounts of gullible people.
One such incident occurred recently. One family had a joint account, in which they had a total of Rs 2 crore. Incidentally, three of the four joint account holders died. One fine day, the father of the sole survivor of the joint account got a message from the bank that Rs 1.2 crore has been withdrawn from the account.
The lady was shocked and approached the bank immediately. However, the bank did little to help her cause. With no other means to figure out how the fraud happened, the lady approached the cybercrime branch in the city.
The cyber police are now conducting inquiries regarding the case.
