Bantwal: Yet Another Bank Account-holder Reveals PIN and Loses Rs 70,000!

Bantwal:  The police from different places appear to have been burdened with tracing another kind of crime – one rendered through the Internet.

Praveen Sornad of Padantakodi in Ajjibettu received a call from a person claiming to be an official from the head office of Canara Bank and sought to know the personal identity number of his ATM card.

Totally trusting the caller to the core, he revealed the PIN to him.

Praveen found later that transfers totalling Rs 70,000 had subsequently made from his account without his consent nor knowledge. The Punjalakatte police are investigating the matter.
