An executive from Gurugram was cheated of Rs 29,000 by a cybercriminal. He had received a call from a woman who posed as a bank employee. She asked him to provide personal details as well as the passwords of the credit and debit cards on the pretext of converting reward points into cash. She later used these details to shop heavily. According to the victim, the woman knew the last four digits of his credit card and informed that his card had won reward points, which he was asked to redeem before the offer expired. The victim received a one-time password (OTP). The woman tricked him into sharing the OTP. Within seconds, he received three messages from his bank stating Rs 29,000 was debited from his bank account.
