In a startling incident, a pharmacy worker in Chennai was left astonished when he received a notification that a staggering ₹753 crore had been credited to his Kotak Mahindra Bank account on a Saturday morning.
The recipient of this unexpected windfall is Mohammad Idris, a 30-year-old pharmacy worker who has been residing in the Teynampet area for the past decade.
At the start of that fateful Saturday morning, Idris had a meager ₹3,000 in his bank account. He made a routine transfer of ₹2,000 to a friend. However, what followed was beyond belief. Shortly after the transaction, Idris received a notification informing him of the colossal deposit.
Recognizing the anomaly, Idris promptly contacted Kotak Mahindra Bank to seek clarification regarding the unexpected deposit.
This incident in Tamil Nadu marks the third instance in the past month and a half where ordinary individuals have seen massive sums of money deposited into their bank accounts.
Just a day prior, a 29-year-old man from Thanjavur had an astounding ₹756 crore credited to his Kotak Mahindra Bank account. The bank swiftly rectified the error after being alerted by the account holder.
In a similar incident approximately a month ago, a Chennai cab driver found an astonishing ₹9,000 crore deposited into his account by Tamil Nadu Mercantile Bank. Puzzled and concerned about the unauthorized transaction, the cab driver sought answers from the city police commissioner’s office.
These bizarre and unprecedented events continue to raise questions about the security and reliability of banking systems, as ordinary individuals grapple with the sudden influx of massive sums into their accounts.
