MAN WITHDRAWS ATM KIOSK, LOSES 1,000 AT 14K
A 33- year- old man withdrew Rs1,000 from an ATM kiosk outside DY Patil College on Saturday.
Three minutes later, he got an SMS alert, informing him that Rs14,000 had been withdrawn from his bank account.
According to the police, Vinayak Narayan Munj went to the ATM kiosk around 2.20pm on Saturday and withdrew Rs1,000 using his ATM card. However, just after three minutes, he received another alert informing that Rs14,000 had been withdrawn from his account.
Confused, he went back to the ATM kiosk to check if someone else withdrew the money after him. But, he did not find anyone there.
“He approached us and narrated the entire incident. We registered a case under section 420 of the Indian Penal Code and section 66D of the IT Act. We are examining the CCTV footages of the ATM kiosk to find the culprits,” said a police officer from Nerul police station.
“After each transaction from an ATM, one should always press ‘ cancel’ button,” he said.
