Beware of Bank App Frauds

You will receive a call or text from a scammer who claims to be from xyz bank. They will provide you with bogus goods.

Scammers and fraudsters send emails and SMS messages claiming that your account has won a reward or that your card has been banned or expired. You are then prompted to contact a number or asked for more information. You may occasionally receive messages from scammers using 10-digit cell phone numbers. You should take this as a caution as banks frequently send SMS from unique numbers.

Genuine banks never ask for personal information or OTPs, unlike fake texts sent by fraudsters posing as your bank. Even if they ask, you shouldn't disclose any information, including your account number, card number, CVV, or other personal identification information. 

Never click on links in emails or SMS messages, and never disclose personal or financial information without double-checking the validity of the request. Any communications that include suspicious links shouldn't be opened. 

Avoid this scam

  • When answering calls from suspicious numbers asking for your account information, use caution. 
  • As soon as you become aware of the scam, report it to your home branch.
  • Block account to prevent financial loss.
  • Don’t trust unknown callers offering easy banking services and sending texts through messaging apps. 
  • Don’t share card details and OTP. 
  • Report the occurrence to the local cybercrime police station and the National Cybercrime Reporting
