Pune Citibank MphasiS Call Center Fraud

Sourcing engineering involves extracting vital information from customers in lieu of helping them get out of a difficult situation and, in the process, transferring money from their accounts to bogus accounts.

These cases are common in the US. However, when something like this happens in India, it is of great concern and cannot be ignored.

It is a case of Citibank account fraud. PIN numbers of a few customers were obtained by some employees after gaining their confidence. We all know call centers operate under high security, and it is almost impossible to carry out this sort of data breach. So, it was a case of sourcing engineering.

Also, a strict check is performed whenever call center employees go in and out. So, they cannot copy down numbers. What they might have done was memorized these numbers, moved out instantly to a cyber cafe, and accessed customers’ Citibank accounts.

Customers who lost their money were informed that the money from their accounts was transferred to Pune accounts. With this information, police traced the criminals, proved the innocence of the call center, and froze all the new accounts into which customers’ money was transferred by the criminals.

In this case, initial investigations did not reveal any crime history against the culprits. Hence, it is not necessary that a person from a non-criminal background cannot commit a crime. Customer education is of utmost importance in the present era, where digitalization is growing at a rapid pace.
