Hubballi, February 23: A bank manager has complained to the Cyber Crime police of having been cheated by a man who claimed to be managing director of RNS Motors, Unkal, convinced her to transfer Rs 24.95 lakh from the account of RNS Motors.
SBI manager Meena K V has complained that the man called her over phone on February 20 morning, saying he was managing director and inquired about the overdraft facilities of the bank. He also asked her to attend a meeting at the RNS Motors’ office that afternoon.
The man called her again in the afternoon. Claiming to have come from Belagavi over urgent work, he requested Meena’s help to transfer money from the account of RNS Motors to the accounts of two customers through RTGS.
Meena, convinced by his words, transferred Rs 9.85 lakh to an ICICI Bank account and Rs 15.1 lakh to another account.
When the manager went to the office of RNS Motors, however, she learned that she had been duped.
