With the rise in digital transactions and their spread to the interiors of the country, complaints related to banking fraud are on the rise in Union Territory of Chandigarh. Statistics reveal that around 50 percent of total registered cyber crime complaints at Cyber Crime Investigation Cell (CCIC), Chandigarh are related to banking fraud. Sources said that with the rise of complaints related to cyber- crime, the staff crunch at CCIC, Sector -17 has impeded cyber-crime investigations. Large numbers of complaints are reported from the victims in Chandigarh but few cases are registered. As per registered complaints, some people in Chandigarh receive phone calls from fraudsters who while being based in states like Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Odisha, Bihar and other states call them up while posing themselves as branch managers or employees of banks. They say that your ATM is blocked and to open it share them ATM’s password. In this way, they dupe those people who share them password of ATM or One Time Password.
