EBL to pay compensation tomorrow

17 February 2016 bdnews24.com


Eastern Bank Limited (EBL) says it will fully compensate their clients who lost their money to card skimming last week.They will be handed cheques at the Bangladesh Bank's conference hall on Thursday, the bank's Head of Communications Ziaul Karim has said. "Our investigation has identified 22 clients whose money was stolen. We already said they will get their money back," he told bdnews24.com on Tuesday.Central bank officials will be present when they are paid the money they lost, he said. The fraud victims began receiving notifications on their phones about cash withdrawals through ATMs last Friday. The central bank's investigators then said skimming devices and video cameras were used to steal information and duplicate fake bank cards for withdrawing cash.The thieves had planted these on six booths by three banks including the EBL, it was said. A circular used by the Bangladesh Bank's payment systems department said the scam could have been avoided if the banks had regularly monitored security footages from their booths besides using anti-scamming devices.
