A 50-year-old Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer was cheated of Rs 60,000 by an online fraudster. The victim had received a message on his mobile phone, stating that his bank account has been temporarily suspended. The victim told police that a fraudster, following the message, got access to his mobile number, Aadhaar number, and other details. He further said that finally, the fraudster linked a Paytm account to his Aadhar and mobile number. Following this, the fraudster withdrew a total of Rs 60,000 in three transactions of Rs 48,000, Rs 10,000 and Rs 2,000 from his State Bank of India (SBI) account.
