If you have just lost money from your bank account through bank ATM or debit card, credit card fraud, then you must do this fast to get it back. This happens due to unauthorised transactions. These are transactions initiated by hackers or thieves. Unauthorised transactions are those transactions that are not initiated by the account holder and every bank gives its customers several modes to block transactions on suspicion of bank fraud or unauthorised transactions.
For instance, ICICI Bank has unveiled a number of things that its account holders should do, including being more vigilant, as many bank fraud cases have emerged. In fact, at least 9 ICICI Bank account holders lost a substantial amount of money because of the "card skimming" activity according to the bank's statement given to Zee Business.
The most basic safety feature - Bank account holders should know that while they generally get a bank notification immediately after a transaction is completed in his/her account, it is still advised that they carry out a periodic check of their accounts.
In case of bank fraud or even a suspicion of bank fraud or loss of your credit or debit card, inform the bank imemdiately. According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) guidelines, you will be entitled to compensation from the bank immediately after you come to know about the fraud.
Please ensure you report any unauthorised transaction immediately. The longer the time taken to notify the Bank, the higher will be the risk of loss to you and to the bank. If you delay reporting, you may not get your money back.
