    A bank manager in Nagarkurnool district fell victim to a cyber attack. The manager received what appeared to be account verification details from a private bank and unknowingly provided personal information like Aadhaar card and PAN card details through a link. The cyber criminals then created a fake account and the manager deposited money into it.

    Three days later, the money disappeared from the account and the manager received a phone call from an unknown person demanding more money. The fraudster threatened to send a morphed nude picture of the manager to 300 people in his contact list if payment was not made.
