Victim Of Online Fraud? How Can I Get My Money Back?

Stealing ATM pins by ATM skimming or other methods is not uncommon nowadays. The huge rise in ATM fraud in India has put the money of both businesses and individual investors at risk. The fraudsters are coming up with new techniques and ideas to clone your payment cards and therefore, you must be very alert to avoid someone from accessing your private data without your permission. 

However, what about those who have already been robbed by an ATM card skimmer or ATM cloning, or any other types of ATM fraud? If you ever go through such a situation, you will need to contact your bank immediately and block your ATM cards at once to prevent further misuse of your cards. 

The RBI does not hold you accountable for the unauthorized transactions if you complain within 3 days but there will be some liability on your part if you complain after that. This means that you have zero liability for all the unethical transactions and frauds if you react proactively within 72 hours. 

Set SMS or email alerts for all your transactions so that you can contact your bank as soon as the crime is committed. However, it is not always possible to be alert, and rather than getting hyper after getting looted, you can subscribe to a card protection plan or wallet insurance policy and create a backup for such emergencies. 

One of the better card protection plans is offered by Bajaj Finserv that provides coverage of up to Rs. 2,00,000 in case your ATM gets robbed or lost. The other features of this comprehensive ATM card protection plan are mentioned below:
