Port Blair, Sep 03: Recently, unknown miscreants who introduced themselves as RBI staff sent fake RBI Master cards purportedly issued from RBI (could be used for withdrawal of money from ATM like ATM Card) to some persons with their names printed on the cards. The senders further instructed the card recipients/holders on how to activate the card with the ATM and as a result, he/she could withdraw some amounts of money i.e Rs. 10,000/- per transaction from the ATM. The debiting bank accounts could not be traced since the said card and its numbers were fake, and could result in unforeseen problems for the card users. In this regard, public are cautioned to note points mentioned below:
RBI never issued any such Mastercard.
There is a chance of card cloning by miscreants which could turn the card user an offender, stealing money from other bank accounts and face legal consequences.
