Alia Bhatt‘s mother Soni Razdan, was recently robbed off money after unknown transactions were made through her credit card.
On Friday, while Soni Razdan was out with her eldest daughter Shaheen Bhatt, she received messages that around 19 transitions were carried out through her credit within a span of few minutes. According to Soni Razdan, the card used for the transactions has always been either in her a cupboard locked, or it’s in her purse but it’s never swiped. She said that she does her transactions through another service.
She informed that she was with her daughter Shaheen in South Mumbai when she received a message with an OTP (one-time password). They thought it was an old message that was resent. In a fraction of a second, there was diarrhoea of messages on her phone with OTPs and transactions. After the ocean of messages received, they informed the bank and they promptly blocked her card, and assured that she won’t have to pay for those fraudulent transactions. After the incident, she is really scared now. She was wondering had not received those messages, she would have been robbed.
Soni Razdan recalled that the last time she had used this card was at the Singapore airport. She is planning to take police action soon.
