According to a PIB announcement, if you have an SBI bank account, you are subject to a scam message that leads criminals to steal customers' funds and personal information.
SBI customers should be wary of a notification informing them that their account has been disabled, according to the Press Information Bureau (PIB). Scammers are apparently sending similar notifications by SMS, and SBI users are being warned not to reply to such messages or calls, or to open any links that may appear with these messages.
Users are also advised not to do the following if they receive the message: -Respond to emails/ SMS requesting personal or financial information.
-If they receive such a message, they should report the number immediately firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to PIB, fraudsters utilise bogus bank communications to trick clients into providing personal information and forcing them to click on any dangerous link.
"Dear A/c holder SBI BANK documents has expired A/c will be blocked Now Click http://sbikvs.II Update by NetBanking," the message states, according to the PIB alert.
There are now methods for determining whether or not such communications are genuine. One of the most popular methods is to determine who sent the communication. Banks always communicate using their official confirmed phone numbers, which appear to be distinct. Second, a bank will never ask you for anything that might reveal your personal or account information to others.
