Also, CBI has registered 3 separate cases against Mumbai-based companies for alleged banking frauds of over Rs 136 crore against State Bank of India.
“It was alleged that the said private companies enjoyed bill discounting facilities against the Letters of Credit issued by State Bank of India, D. N. Road branch and PM Road Branch, Fort, Mumbai. “However, these bills were returned unpaid by the concerned banks, since it was observed that there were instances of diversion of funds and misrepresentations by the companies,” CBI Spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said.
An Internal inquiry by the bank has also revealed irregularities such as raising multiple invoices, false lorry receipts showing incorrect vehicle registration numbers and vehicles other than heavy goods transport vehicles being shown as means of transportation.
We request our audience to be very careful while sharing banking details with anyone over a phone call or on online websites as fraudsters are always looking for new ways to cheat the innocent ones.
