Mangaluru: A teacher lost Rs 7.47 lakh to fraudsters in the guise of KYC document updation.

In a complaint registered with the cybercrime police, the Government High School teacher states that she was defrauded after calling the bank’s customer care number.

The teacher, a resident of Koppa Maderi in Nelyadi, received a message on June 11 from an unknown number informing her that her son’s ATM card had been blocked. The message further urged the woman to call the bank’s customer service number at 8240871104 to complete KYC updation. However, it was a fake number that connected the fraudsters.

The teacher dialled the number and shared the KYC documents.

When the teacher received a message from the bank notifying her that the registered mobile number had been changed, she realised she had been duped. When she went to the bank, she found that, out of the Rs. 8 lakh that was deposited on June 23, Rs. 7.47 lakhs were later transferred.

According to the complaint, the Bank Manager informed her that fraudsters obtained an Rs. 8 lakh loan in her name and siphoned it off in phases.
