This is a Recent incidence happened in my family.
We all have been using Paytm wallet and have been keeping money in this app to comfortably use it as and when needed. Till date even I was of the opinion that its safe and can never be misused. But finally a wallet is a wallet and there are pick pockets luring around us. It is easy for one to be careful and be aware of the wallet kept in one's pants. But what about the digital wallets. Do we keep opening our digital wallets every now and then ? Answer is NO
To our surprise one fine day when my brother opened his wallet to make a payment he was surprised to notice that a whopping 14000/- rupees had just vanished from the balance. Upon investigation and enquiring with the wallet company, the number who had hacked and received the money was identified. Then the company officials asked us to make a police FIR. Thanks to our great police who refused to accept the complaint and gave a vague reason that such small complaints cannot be accepted as they want to keep the number of FIRs to the minimum until the next elections.
How stupid and ridiculous can this get.
We were left High and dry and the money is gone.
So a word of caution to all my readers. Use your e wallets carefully and keep not more than 1000 at any given point.
Share this article to maximum friends and relatives so that all can learn the lesson with out paying as high as we paid to learn this lesson. This seal of trust really needs to be questioned here..
Stay Safe and secured !
