A 62-year-old retired officials of a nationalised bank was allegedly duped by a cyber criminal who posed as a bank official, and duped him of Rs1.06 lakh by obtaining his credit and debit card details, as well as the One Time Passwords (OTP).

The complainant (name withheld) is a resident of Andheri (West). He received a phone call from a woman at 10.30 am on April 5, who told him that she is calling from a nationalised bank, where the complainant has a credit card.

On the pretext of converting bonus points on his credit card to a few thousand rupees, she asked for his 16-digit card number and the CVV number on the back of the card.

The victim then received OTPs on his mobile phone, which he shared with her seven times.

Then, the woman passed the phone to another cyber criminal who posed as her senior. This man told victim that the money for the bonus points needs to be transferred to another account and asked for his Bank of India debit card details.

The unsuspecting senior citizen shared his card details for second time and also another three OTPs. At 2.30 pm he found that Rs 1.06 lakh was withdrawn from his account.
