Executing such forgery
Regarding the manner in which the fraudsters cheat, the bank has said that the fraudsters first create FD accounts of gullible customers with their net banking details and transfer some amount. SBI has said that fraudsters ask for OTP from the customer by posing as a bank official. After this, if the customer shares the OTP, then the FD amount is transferred to his account.
Banks warn customers to avoid cryptocurrencies, card may be canceled
Don’t make these five mistakes
The bank has said that never share your OTP, PIN, CVV or UPI PIN of your debit card or credit card with anyone. Most frauds happen in the name of changing the password by making a phone call. The fraudsters tell the customers that if they do not change the password, then the card will be blocked, which the customers fear and tell them everything.
Never save your bank account information on your phone. If the phone is stolen, you can become a victim of fraud.
Do not share your ATM card details with any person.
To keep your bank account safe, avoid online transactions from public internet, open networks and free Wi-Fi zones. Using these open networks can leak your information and increase the risk of online fraud.
– No bank ever asks its customers for details like User ID, PIN, Password, CVV, OTP, VPA, UPI etc. When a person asks for such information over the phone or internet, then understand that it is a fraud. Do not give any information.
