He wanted to courier Rakhi so he searched “Courier services near me” in Justdial.
He got the listings
He choosed one & dialed.

The number was “6289849392”.

The number was answered by a person told my friend that "Due to lock down we have digitalized the booking process, will send u a link for registration payment and u need to pay the registration amount only after this will arrange the booking.

So he followed & was asked to give the OTP over call. By the time he hanged up call he lost about 24K.

When he ranged me for help, I asked him to send me the link and I found the link was for “Filling debit card detail Google form.”

Now the Bank says “Since u gave the data,it’s your fault”. My friend says " yes it’s my fault,but when I accept u must help me as well ! "

Cop als saying the same " it’s your fault".

He also reported to Justdial but so far no actionable response.

He stunned with this all & unable to come out of this misery !

So u mean to say otp was shared or registration was done by UPI pin ?! Raise dispute/chargeback with bank telling they haven’t provided services. U will get back money. Justdial won’t help in anything rather than address which will be fake in most cases. If u had used Justdial pay mode u can ask for bank account to which it was credited

Must have been a typical fraud call → Sir, I am **** speaking from **** bank → your atm card will be blocked in 2-3 days → In order to activate it please follow → give out your card number, expiry, cvv → finally authenticate using the otp that you just revived.
However nowadays these scammers are evolving, and although the basic step to do fraud remains the same (card number,expiry,cvv,otp); they will rephrase the calls to be more pleasing like this one:

My friend shared the OTP , the fraudster already had his Debit card detail.

The person on call sent him the link which was actually Debit card filling Google form. So the fraudster needed only OTP. The transaction was done on Flipkart.  When I contacted the Flipkart they refused to reavel the order details/cancel the order

Bank is right. How exactly is your friend expecting help here?

You can get it revealed with a court order

This is understandable…. Raise a cybercrime complaint and file a chargeback with same… There is no other option for ur friend to recover money

i think, this 24K apart, your friend URGENTLY needs psychiatric assesment and you could help in that instead.

if she is a woman (gender), then ensure she doesn’t go about outside by herseld, especially after daylight hours.
also impress it on her to NEVER accept food or drinks/ juices that haven’t been made right in front and poured into a clean, random glass (with no special markings).

this (whatever your friend did) is not a case of being a simpleton, but borderline lunacy. (and i do not say this in a disrespectful way. assuming they are not minor and are of sound mind)

such setbacks would repeat when they manifests themselves in professional life, love life, business dealings/job or other relations.
needs prolonged counsel.

I totally agree with you. I was so Annoyed after Listening the Case ! It’s very humiliating/embarassing case.
I mean how u can act so stupid ? Seriously giving all the details and asking for trouble and then sit and cry !

The  Agony is she(My friend) is a graduate & working in a marketing firm but still she felt in this Racket.

Such people really exist? I thought this was just fantasy story. I literally get warning emails and messages every week from my banks about consequences of sharing debit/credit card and bank account details.
Op I mean no personal offense however this is height of stupidity. She is graduate and working professional and even after that fell into such cheap scam. It’s plain ignorance. Did she ever care to read bank emails or message which scream not to share any confidential details with anybody?

Note: ask her to file a fir and raise a dispute with bank.

They approached Bank but Bank says “the data was shared by you,else would have taken action”.
She’s facing similar reply in every front !

Really it’s a Hight of stupidity when your inbox is Full of such awareness messages and still you go ahead and Make a fun of your self!

Banks even calls me sometime for such messages. It’s very annoying. Now after all these annoying messages when I read/listen scam incidents (like op friend) then I feel stupified.

Bank have limited their responsibility when confidential data is willingly shared by card/account holder. If she had not shared her otp then everything was fine (even if it was used for international transactions).
I had signed up for a trial service (from international website) and shared my debit card details with them however they charged money before trial period was over. I raised unauthorised transaction dispute with bank (icici) and my money was refunded in a month.

Note: OP ask her to tweet and send email to bank customer service. See if they help.

There is a reason why the banks constantly asked you not to share OTP to them for the most of the time.

In such cases just say it was unauthorised transaction, you did not share your card data with anyone (not with that service/website too).

But u know when they Dig the Transaction they will come to know how the transaction was made like UPI, NETBANKING,DEBIT CARD ETC

So not the right option I would suggest. infact they will backfire with  “conspiracy” act (I think so).

Seriously though people need to grow a brain it seems. Why on earth do these people just share everything over a bloody phone call i wonder! Why they don’t have even this much bloody common sense! I was even able to teach this to my mum, who is like an extra ordinary dumb person for tech stuffs!

I have not received any fraud calls recently, other than the one few months ago on the exact same day when a nearby bank was looted by some amateur dacoits. Problem is, i want to receive some, i trolled the last guy by saying a fake debit card number and cvv code and otp too lmfao, he didn’t realise at first, said wait let me check your credentials then simply hung up. I called back many times afterwards, keeps saying out of service.
