Former bureaucrat and former Mangaluru South MLA J.R. Lobo has joined the list of online fraud victims when he lost Rs. 49,000 from his bank account after divulging ATM details and the one time password (OTP) to a caller posing as a bank official. Following the fraud, Mr. Lobo has lodged a plaint with the Mangaluru East Police seeking action against the culprits. The police have registered a case and are investigating. “It is not that I was unaware of online frauds or cheating; yet I fell prey to the culprit following the way in which he spoke authoritatively,” Mr. Lobo said.
