A celebrity make-up artist from Mumbai recently lost Rs 69,000 to debit card fraud; even without sharing the one-time password (OTP) or PIN. She had registered a first information report (FIR) on August 5th. According to the police, it could be a case of card cloning or a data leak. She got to know that she had lost money; only after she received four messages on her mobile phone, saying a total of Rs 69,000 was transferred from the bank account. She immediately called her bank’s customer care number and asked them to block the card; to stop any further misuse. A couple of years ago, she had lost Rs 2,000 to a similar fraud; but had managed to get the money back.
