Bangalore: Most of us first go to Google to find an answer to every question. But a Bengaluru woman lost her entire bank balance due to a mistake on Google Search. Recently, a Bengaluru woman searched Google when she could not find the number of the customer service center on the Zomato app. After the Google search, the woman put a call on the number. In the process of granting a refund request, the woman gave all the details of her bank account and within minutes her bank balance was null.
In fact, The number of Zomato customer care that appeared on Google Search was fake. A police complaint has also been lodged against these fake call centers by Zomato. Similarly, a woman from Chennai was caught in a bluff over a fake customer care number. When the woman accidentally called the fake customer care number, the fraudster asked the woman to reveal the password of the bank account. When the woman suspected of fraud, she misquoted her PIN number.
