Aftab Shivdasani Looted For Rs. 1.50 Lacs In Online Banking Scam
Bollywood star Aftab Shivdasani has become the latest victim of an online banking scam. Shivdasani received a notification on his mobile phone informing him about the suspension of his Axis Bank account.
Upon clicking the link provided in the message, he received a phone call from an individual claiming to be a bank official. This imposter requested personal information from Shivdasani, specifically his PAN Card details, and the actor unfortunately fell prey to the scammer’s deceitful tactics.
Subsequently, Shivdasani was shocked to receive a message notifying him of a deduction of Rs. 1,49,999 from his bank account.
