New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: The Vodafone-Idea mobile connection became the centre of talk on Tuesday, but this time not for its slow internet speed or tacky network.

A lot many users pointed out that they haven't been to abroad in the recent past, but still money had been deducted from their accounts.
