Recently, my uncle received a phone call from a person. He was claiming that he was calling from the bank where my uncle had an account. He told him that they were updating the bank accounts of all the account holders and for that he would need his account number and his PIN. My uncle did not think for a moment and gave away his account details in a jiffy. What amazes me is that my uncle himself works in the bank as a manager. After 10 minutes of giving the details, my uncle received multiple SMSs stating that amounts ranging up to 40000 were debited from his account. He was shocked and before he could react and get his account blocked, the damage had already been done. He lodged a complaint with the police that finally they concluded that the hacker used the amount for shopping on various e-commerce websites and that amount hasn't been recovered till now. I request you all to be aware of such calls and not to provide sensitive information such as Account numbers, Credit Card and Debit Card details, PIN etc. Also, do not respond to anonymous emails asking for sensitive bank account information. Stay clear of such frauds.
