Ambala, October 13
Buying a shirt online cost an Ambala resident Rs 2 lakh after fraudsters withdrew money from his account using a link and one-time password (OTP).
The victim, Ashwani Sharma (63), is a resident of Shastri colony in Ambala Cantonment. He said he had ordered a shirt online, which cost him Rs 500, but when he received the parcel, there was a torn women’s suit inside.
“I made a complaint at the customer care and the executive assured me that my money will be returned. The executive sent a link and sought some details, followed by an OTP. At first, Rs 1 lakh was deducted from my account and then Rs 1 lakh more was deducted in four transactions. It all happened within 15 minutes,” Ashwani added.
Sharma said when he tried to contact the customer care executive again, the numbers were switched off, but received a call later in the night and was threatened that more money would be withdrawn from his account.
A case has been registered under Sections 406 and 420 of the IPC against unidentified persons. — TNS
