New ATM Fraud in Delhi, Fraudsters Leave Their Number Written, Thousands Cheated.

There’s a new sneaky trick scammers are using at ATMs, and it’s pretty clever (but not in a good way). So, this lady in Delhi, Apoorva, went to withdraw some cash from an ATM in Mayur Vihar. She pops in her card, and bam, it gets stuck! Classic move, right?

Now, here’s where it gets interesting. A guy hanging around offers to help and points her to a number written on the machine. She calls it, thinking it’s the bank’s helpline. But surprise, surprise, it’s not! The person on the other end pretends to be a bank agent and tells her to follow some steps to get her card out.

Long story short, she follows the instructions, and the machine goes “Out Of Service.” Meanwhile, the scammer asks for her phone number and convinces her to leave the card in the machine. After a while, she gets a message saying Rs. 21,000 has been debited from her account. Ouch!

Here’s the deal: scammers are using a liquid to make your card stick in the machine. Then, they’ve already written down a fake helpline number for you to call. When you call, they pretend to help but actually scam you. Sneaky, right?

So, if this ever happens to you, don’t fall for it! Dial 100 and get help from the police ASAP. Stay safe out there!
