Customers have been advised not to click on any link that asks for OTP or other bank related information. Bank never asks for such details therefore be beware of such e-mails. It is usually the fraudsters who send such e-mails tell customers about EMI or DBT and Prime Minister Care Fund and asking to click on fake link.

  1. Beware of cash winning scheme

Beware of promising schemes that offer jobs or cash prizes. These are just meant to trap users. Counterfeiters usually send them via SMS, email or phone call.

  1. Update passwords regularly

Change your internet banking login and transaction password from time to time. And to ensure the safety, avoid sharing it with anyone or saving it on your desktop, laptop or mobile.

  1. Bank does not ask for password or OTP

Therefore always visit the fairly old way of fraudsters to take any information.

  1. Report immediately
