Concerned over a number of persons alleging card cloning, the State Bank of India (SBI) today lodged a complaint with the Cyber Cell of Chandigarh Police. Requesting the Chandigarh Police to investigate the complaints made by SBI customers, the SBI has submitted in its complaint that in majority of such cases, clients had used their SBI ATM cards to pay for fuel at petrol pumps.
Source said, that SBI officials have spotted a pattern. It has been noticed that people, who have been duped of money on account of "card cloning" had used their ATM cards at the Sectors 21 and 39 fuel stations. The SBI officials have requested the Chandigarh Police to find out, if any, the "source of leakage" so that the Bank can "plug" the loopholes.
In its complaint, SBI has submitted details of four clients who have been defrauded. It might be mentioned that nearly half a dozen cases of suspected card cloning from State Bank of India account holders have been reported in the past two weeks.
Couple of the victims, SBI customers, had approached the Chandigarh Police and got cases registered.
It might be mentioned here that similar complaints had been received by the Police, last week, from other Banks also.
"We have received complaint from the SBI today. We will be investigating into it and take appropriate action" said a police official.
