A man from Mumbai lost Rs 1.5 Lakh from his bank account after clicking on an income tax refund message. He had received a message on his phone on this tax refund. Thinking it to be true; he clicked on the message. As soon as he clicked on the message, a mobile application was automatically downloaded on his phone. The victim believing something was wrong deleted the message as well as the app from his phone. But, the next day he got to know his phone had been hacked and money was stolen from his bank account. The victim immediately called the bank and got his account blocked. He later found out that the money from his bank account had gone to two different accounts.
