Actor Aftab Shivdasani was tricked into a KYC fraud worth Rs. 1.5 lakh.
He got a call from someone who pretended to be from his bank.
They asked him to update his KYC details to prevent his account from being blocked.
Shivdasani shared his personal information, including his bank account number and debit card details.
The scammer then moved Rs. 1.5 lakh from Shivdasani’s account to another one.
Shivdasani realized he had been scammed after the transaction. He reported the incident to the police and the bank.
The police are investigating, and the bank has blocked Shivdasani’s debit card.
This serves as a reminder to be cautious when sharing personal information, even if someone claims to be from a bank.
Banks will never ask for personal information over the phone or email.
If someone contacts you claiming to be from a bank and asks for your personal information or to update your KYC info, end the call or delete the email.
Check with your bank directly to make sure the request is genuine.
You can also update your KYC info by visiting the bank’s website or branch.
