Online banking fraud Alert: Avoid cyber fraud like this

  • For any information related to bank account, go directly to the bank.
  • No bank asks for personal information related to your account. Also, it is said that do not tell any bank related password to the bank representative.
  • Read the message on the mobile carefully, because the language of the vicious message is written in such a way that people understand it as the message of the bank and get confused.
  • Do not share any OTP with any person posing as a bank representative.
  • Take the customer care number by visiting the bank. Feed it in your mobile phone. Do not search the number from google.
  • Many times messages of vicious people come on social media messengers by becoming acquaintances. In such a situation, know the matter by calling that acquaintance directly.
  • Do not give your card to any unknown person at any ATM booth. This may lead to cloning of your card.
