73-year-old man tricked by an imposter lost Rs. 1.25L


A 73-year-old retired Mumbai man got duped for Rs. 1.25 lakh after he called his bank’s customer care on August 21.

While searching for his bank’s customer service number online, the senior citizen called a bogus number. The fraudster duped the senior citizen into providing his bank details, and transferring Rs 1.25 lakh from his bank account, under the guise of resolving his problem.

On August 21, the incident occurred. The complainant told the Wadala police that he had an old Axis bank account and had lost his ATM card’s pin number, which he wanted to recover. He looked up Axis Bank’s customer service number on Google and called on the number he found.

Using a remote access mobile application, the fraudster obtained the complainant’s banking information and in five transactions withdrew Rs. 1.25 lakh. The complainant immediately contacted his bank and requested that his account be frozen.
