Booking online train ticket costs a Dharwad resident Rs 2.10 lakh

Hubballi: If you rely on search engines to get contact information for services or to find any information, be cautious next time. Searching for contact numbers on search engines may lead you to a cyber fraudster‘s phone number.

Cyber fraudsters provide fake phone numbers on search engines in the names of various banks, services, and customer care services of companies.

A Dharwad resident recently lost Rs 2.10 lakh by dialling a fake bank helpline. The victim attempted to book a train ticket online, but his account was debited without confirmation of booking, cybercrime police said and added that he decided to contact the bank’s customer service to inquire about this. He looked up the number online and dialled the number that the search engine displayed.

The person who answered the phone offered him assistance and requested him to download the Anydesk app on his phone, which the victim did without hesitation. Later, the victim texted his credit card information, including the number, expiration date, CVV number, and PAN card details to that person.

As soon as he shared the information with the caller, the victim received a message informing him that the cash had been deducted from his savings account and credit card. The victim filed a report with the cybercrime police, and an investigation is underway.

Bluejacking is on the rise, so limit your use of hands-free connections and turn off your blue tooth when not in use.
