A 68-year-old woman from Bengaluru lost Rs 1.25 Lakhs which she had saved for the treatment of her husband who was suffering from a chronic ailment. The woman received a call from a person who claimed to be an executive of a nationalized bank where she had two accounts. The caller told her that the debit cards of both her bank accounts must be renewed. When the woman said that she has already got them updated, the caller stated that it was compulsory and asked her to give details of both the accounts. After she gave her bank details, Rs 75,000 was debited from one account and Rs 50,000 from another. When she asked the bank to stop payments, the bank refused, stating she should not have shared her bank details.
