Earlier this week, the retired scientist was left helpless when he discovered that his life-long savings disappeared in a suspected scam transaction. The transactions were conducted on October 25 and 26 through his account and withdrew the total amount within just 17 hours.
Additionally, after the scientist, Inspector General (IG) Punjab Tariq Masood Yaseen’s bank account was hacked and during the time period Rs 2 million had vanished from his account.
FIA’s cyber-crime unit is now investigating the disappearance of money from the accounts.
While addressing the issues, the director of FIA Cyber-crimes unit (retd), Mohammad Shoaib said, “Almost all [Pakistani] banks’ data has been breached. According to the reports that we have, most of the banks have been affected.”
