Man loses Rs.1.81 lakh to cyber fraud when buying medicine online.
A 32-year-old man in Nagpur in Maharashtra lost 1.81 lakh rupees moments after sharing the OTP to buy medicine online over the phone, police said Tuesday. The victim, a resident of Parate Nagar, had visited a medical store on Sunday night to buy some medicines but was unable to get them.
“He returned home and began looking for medications online when he received a call from an unidentified person who told him that he would deliver the medications to his home. Assuming he was a real drug supplier, the victim shared his credit card number and the OTP received on his mobile phone with the caller. Within half an hour, the scammer withdrew 1.81470 rupees from the victim’s bank account, “said an official.
On Tuesday a case was registered under section 420 of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act, he added.
