These days, cyber thugs make a representative of the bank and after calling, ask people for their account information. Many times people trust their words and fall prey to fraud.
New Delhi: With increasing internet services in the country, the number of cyber crimes is increasing rapidly. Cyber thugs make people their victims in new ways and clean their bank account.
Criminals try to target most people through calls. They call you as a bank representative and ask for information related to accounts and debit cards. Some people come to their talk and give information about account number, debit card number, CVV and OTP and withdraw money from their account.
Often banks instruct their customers not to give their personal information on such phone calls. Recently, the Reserve Bank of India has issued a warning about similar fraud.
It has been said that these days the thugs are targeting people using their toll free numbers like bank. In such a situation, people need to take special precautions. For any information related to the bank, you should contact the nearest branch or contact on the certified email, website or number.
Keeping these things in mind will be beneficial
Always keep in mind that no bank or other financial institution asks for information related to your account, debit card or OTP via phone. In such a situation, if someone calls and talks about being a representative of the bank, then he can be a cyber thug.
You can give this information to the customer care of the bank. With this you will be able to avoid fraud.
If you are using internet banking, do not click on any unknown link. Also, do not fill your details by going to any other website. This increases the risk of cyber fraud.
Many times people consider the numbers on the Internet and give them their information by considering the official customer care number of the bank. In such a situation, cyber thugs make them their victims. Always keep in mind that the certified customer care number and email and other information are given on the official website of the bank. These should be used.
Many times thugs call you and ask that your credit or debit card be blocked. After this, you start asking for your personal information. Do not trust any such call. If you have any kind of problem, you can contact in the nearest branch. Apart from this, you can tell your problem through official email ID.
