Another complaint of ATM fraud has been made by three more victims to the cyber crime investigation cell (CCIC) of UT police.

The three victims claimt of money being withdrawn from their accounts. They got to know of this through their mini statements.

In another case, Rs 1.11 lakh was taken out from the accounts of three other customers using cloned ATM cards. All the cases have occured with SBI customers.

Indirect or direct role of bank employees in this scam is also being considered. The police says that several faults in the functioning of SBI in relation to closed circuit television cameras and deployment of security guards for ATMs has been detected.

According to police, the phishers had installed skimmer machines in the ATMs which copied the PIN number and account details of the customers.

CCTVs have also been found to be of low resolution. Also, in one case, the culprit had covered the CCTV with a cloth before the fraud. "That is only possible if nobody is manning the ATM," said a cop.
