Financial Frauds - Must Read all
Here is How my friend’s mother’s Saving Account was drained by a hacker with the help of aadhar card. Here is how it happened:
Last Month friend went to PNB Bank for mother passbook entry. He noticed 0 balance in Account.
After that he asked the banker why it’s showing 0 balance and called immediately to his mother & explained she has 0 balance. She said I have never withdrawn any money, how come it is showing 0?
After sometime she came to bank along with him and they had a discussion with bank manager.
Bank Manager replied: “Someone drained this account by using Aadhar card fingerprint from Bihar
Friend said we have never shared our Aadhar card and OTP with anyone how it can be hacked.
He said here are lot of cases where hacker copied/clone finger print from plot/flat registry documents.
When asked where is our fault? Is money not safe in bank ?
This is the banking system’s failure, if someone is doing continued transactions using finger print with different -different location why bank is not blocking account access?
After detailed discussion the manager said only one thing to them:
This is not in my hand i can only write a complaint if you will first file police report
Here is the key lesson:
Must turn off aadhar biometric authentication. By default it's on.
Hacker can easily clone fingerprint and access bank account with different location. more
