I don't know Ascky, what you are doing is essentially blaming the victim. By your logic all those who were victims of credit card fraud via similar methods should get no compensation and should deal with it. Perfect example of Victim blaming.
If you open up the terms and conditions of your credit card policy and your online banking partner, they'll have a neat little clause too where they expressly mention that the company would never ask for your password. However people are victims of such scams inspite of this, does not mean the credit card company would shrug their hands off and say "not my fault you're dumb enough".
This is pretty shocking that your fellow leaders were giving me lectures regarding how Indians are scamming their people regarding these methods but here you are, victim blaming.
A decent reply wouldve been to simply condemn it and bring the culprit into the light.
