Hassan had reportedly received a message on  his mobile number from the unidentified number ‘9883606335’  asking him to call another number ‘8343970608’ and update the Know Your Customer (KYC) for his Jio SIM within 24 hours.

“After downloading, I received an ID number and followed the directions of the caller victim. I pressed different buttons that appeared on the screen,” said Kazi Enamul Hassan.

“Later I discovered that an amount of Rs 9201 has been debited from my bank account in the Dhubri branch of the Punjab National Bank on July 12 through Unified Payments Interface,” he said.

Several other innocent persons have become victims of cyber fraud in the past few months through the same modus operandi, but the police are yet to take action against the fraudsters.
