This is how you can get full money in case of fraud
Most people do nothing when banking fraud occurs. In such cases the police also show reluctance. But, by taking immediate action you can get the entire money back. According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), you can avoid losses by giving timely information about cyber fraud to your bank. Banks take insurance policy for cyber fraud. The bank informs the insurance company about the fraud that happened to you. After the paperwork, the bank will take money from the insurance company and compensate for your loss.
If information is not given within 3 days, there will be loss
The most important thing is that you have to inform the bank about the fraud within 3 days. If you delay in this, it may be difficult to compensate for the loss. According to RBI, if information is given within the stipulated time, the amount will be returned within 10 days. If the fraud is reported after 4 to 7 days, the customer will have to bear a loss of up to Rs 25 thousand.
