Revealing ATM password to goons costed victim woman a loss of Rs 56,899/-



It is quite surprising how some people never learn from the mistakes of others. In another fraud committed by some unscrupulous goon, a 62-year-old woman was looted of Rs. 56,899/- of her hard earned income from her SBI account.

According to police sources, the victim identified as Jyoti Lalitkumar Yarlagadda aged 62-years and a resident of C-201 of Utkarsha Anuradha Apartments, behind Hotel Heritage received a phone call from an unidentified person claiming himself to be the Manager of State Bank of India (SBI), Bandra, Mumbai. He allegedly told the victim that her ATM facility is going to get closed down due to some technical problem. He somehow gained her confidence and convinced her to reveal the details of her account number including the ATM password.

However, the goon managed to withdraw Rs 56,899/- from her account on different occasions. When the victim realized that she has been fleeced of Rs. 56,899/-, she lodged a complaint in the Sadar Police Station.

On the basis of the complaint lodged by the victim, Police Sub Inspector Shirke of Sadar Police Station registered a case under sections 170, 419, 420 of Indian Penal Code and under Section 66 (C)(D) of Information Technology Act and have initiated an investigation in the matter.
