I have launched a fraud complaint # 119436022 with ICICI bank customer care.
Nobody from Bank Employee want to give the information in writing that fraud has taken place & only told me that i have to wait for 30 days Inquiry which is going on.

To Transfer the money following Information is required which is best of my
Knowledge. I have never shared any of the following details with anybody (1. Login ID, 2.Login Password, 3.Transaction password & 4.Registration & Confirmation of payee on my mobile no, 5.few series of number related to alphabates from grid on back of debit card).

ICICI Bank should be held responsible for not having secured internet banking. There are several such fraud cases through internet banking with ICICI bank.
I had also reported ICICI customer care on phone & also via icicibank.com website option Report a suspicious e-mail about suspicious mails received in my email account (with icici logo) asking for account information. Still no acknowledgement or action was received from ICICI Bank.

It is nightmare for me after losing the money. I am single earning member of family of six members. I was keeping that money for family maintenance.

I need your Intervention & support to resolve the issue & get back My Hard earned Money at the earliest.
