FD fraud modus operandi
This new form of cyber fraud has recently been noticed where in fraudsters are using victim's FD account to siphon off money. They first create FD account of the target victims with the help of their net banking details and transfer some amount.

Once the victim shares the OTP, the cyber criminals transfer the entire FD amount into their own account. Source: PTI
