A youth from Thiruvananthapuram reported Credit-card extortion to the tune of Rs. 88,516 through his SBI credit card on Thursday.
Working in an automobile showroom, Hari Kumar, a local of Poojappura, proclaimed to have lost Rs. 88,516 through a solitary exchange. The exchange had occurred through PayPal, a “digital” wallet, around 11.45 a.m.
Not long after receiving a SMS alert, Kumar contacted the bank and simultaneously blocked the card. With the transaction being finished without the need of a “one-time-password” (OTP), authorities of the bank were dubious that it could have been conscripted from outside the nation.
Kumar later added that he came to know from the digital cell that no less than three comparative cases were still pending before the police.
The Dissensions however, have been submitted to the District Police Chief of the Thiruvananthapuram city as well as the Cyber Cell.
