HDFC Bank Complaint - Victim of Net Banking Fraud
MUMBAI -- I am Rohit Raj currently working in Mumbai, India.
I am having salaried account with HDFC Bank in one of the Mumbai's Branch (Mulund Branch). On 08.03.08, I realized that Rs 1,45000/- (One lakh forty five thousand) have been unauthorizedly withdrawn from my account. I did not carry out the transaction. I immediately filed an complaint on HDFC Bank help line.On 10.03.08 , I filed a written complaint in the concerned branch.
I came to know following details --
1. There are more victims of the crime and total fraud amount is nearly five lakhs
2. The entire money got transferred in one account and then to third account.
3. Owner of third account claims that she is a rightful owner of money and she was expecting this amount from Mr Shisodia
In the entire process, Bank seems to raise the hands. I think Bank is waiting for more incidences to happen. Even after this happened banks are asking me to file an FIR. They seem not be interested in finding out the roots of such incidences
Before this incidence, similar sort of fraud happened through netbanking where one Nigerian fellow was caught. It included around Rs 1.25 Lakhs.
What I am really interested in is spreading awareness about such issues and secondly asking Bank to stop the casual approach for such cases. As tomorrows era is of paperless transactions and such issues may cause havoc in future. So we have to take security steps today to make our future safe.
