School teacher duped

Beware. Frauds are moving around you. The latest victim is a school teacher who had to hand over his ATM details acting on a wrong information by a fraudster. 

It took place in Dimakuchi where Sita Ram Das, a resident of Nonai Khas village in Udalguri received a call asking for details of his SBI account citing the enforcement of GST

Later, he found that ₹50,000 has been withdrawn from his account.

ATM frauds are a growing menace these days. The latest trick seems to be fraudsters citing GST as the reason why they need the bank details as has been in a case where a school teacher was duped by a fraudstar in sharing his S.B.I bank account details and later he found that an amount nearly of Rs. 50,000 has been debited. 

 

When asked his home branch officials denied asking for any details of his account much to a major disappointment of the venture school teacher.
