Nagpur: A 69-year-old man was duped of Rs 77,000 by a cyber fraudster who impersonated as a bank employee and sought details of his debit and credit cards for verification purpose.

A resident of Plot No. 23, Shriram Nagar, New Subedhar Ring Road, Deendayal Ramprasad Nokariya (69), told police that he received phone call on September 29, 2017, and caller sought details of his debit and credit card for verification purpose. Believing the caller to be bank employee, Deendayal divulged vital details of his debit and credit card in good faith, little knowing that he would be cheated. Armed with the vital details, the trickster transferred Rs 77,826 online from account of Deendayal to his e-wallet. The fraud came to light after the complainant Deendayal received text messages of the transactions. When he realised that he had been duped, it was too late.
