Another customer of state-owned lender PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) in Blitar, East Java, has reported that money in his BRI account was withdrawn by unknown person.
“I lost Rp 39.5 million (US$2,876),” Lukas from Blitar, who works at a resort in Perak, Malaysia, said on Wednesday through a phone call, as reported by tempo.co.
Lukas said he knew he had lost some money when his wife, who was out of town and left the ATM cards at home, asked his brother to check the balance at an ATM.
She wanted to check the balance following frequent reports of ATM fraud. Lukas said his wife had told him that only Rp 300,000 was left in the BRI account.
On Monday, dozens of BRI customers in Kediri, East Java reported a loss of funds.
Elvina, said she learned that Rp 500,000 had been withdrawn from her account after receiving an SMS message from the bank. Meanwhile, Mujiyat said he discovered that Rp 10 million had been withdrawn by an unknown man when he checked with the bank after he could not withdraw any money because he had surpassed his daily limit even though he had not made any withdrawals.
The National Police’s cybercrime division is investigating the case. (bbn)
