Nagpur: In yet another cyber crime, a senior citizen was tricked and robbed of over Rs 2.50 lakh by a bogus State Bank of India employee.

The complainant, Dr Ramesh Narharpant Naulakhe (73), resident of Sadavarti Mohalla, Umred, told police that he received frequent calls on his mobile phone from a number 8294118110 between 26.09.15 and 8.10.15. The caller identified himself as employee of State Bank of India’s Customer Care Center and told Dr Naulakhe that his account has been tampered with and the Bank is investigating the matter. The fake SBI employee further told Dr Ramesh Naulakhe that he will receive a CHS email on his mobile and that he will have to disclose his One Time Passward (OTP) to the bank. Believing the concocted story, Dr Naulakhe disclosed the One Time Password to the trickster.

Armed with the OTP of Dr Naulakhe, the bogus SBI employee siphoned off Rs 2,69,842 from the doctor’s account by way of online shopping. When the fraud came to the notice of Dr Naulakhe, he lodged a complaint with Imamwada police against the trickster.
