Two national banks today assured\u00a0people who have lost their money following fraudulent\u00a0withdrawal by unknown miscreants from ATMs in the city of\u00a0repaying their lost amounts, a senior police officer said.\u00a0The banks' officials held a meeting with top officers\u00a0of Kolkata Police and assured that they would repay their\u00a0customers who have lost the money in the ATM fraud, Joint Commissioner of Police, crime, Praveen Tripathi told newsmen. He said that a special investigating team has been\u00a0formed by the force to probe the matter.\u00a0So far around 76 customers of two\u00a0 nationalised banks\u00a0and one private bank, mostly from the Golpark area in south\u00a0Kolkata have complained that they were duped of huge amounts\u00a0of money even when they were not using their debit cards at\u00a0any ATM, he said. "So far around Rs 18 lakh to Rs 30 lakh have been\u00a0siphoned off by fraudsters operating mostly from the national\u00a0capital region," Tripathi said. Talking about the manner the money was siphoned from\u00a0the accounts though the debit cards were with the customers,\u00a0another\u00a0 police officer said that the miscreants could have used the skimming method in this case.\u00a0"In this process a person will copy the details of the\u00a0ATM card using a device called a skimmer and then prepare a\u00a0similar card, called clone and then withdraw money\u00a0 from the\u00a0account," he said. The ATMs of the two nationalised banks where such\u00a0incidents were reported were at Golpark and Mallickbazar.\u00a0There were\u00a0 reports of people losing money also in Park Street,\u00a0Bowbazar, College Street and Jadavpur, Tripathi said.\u00a0"A probe is on," he added.
