It also clarified that a fake site has been created in its name and is being used by fraudsters to rob the customers.
SBI has appealed and alerted that the people must not share their credit or debit card numbers, OTP, CVV, UPI pin or ATM pin to anyone at all. No bank asks for such information from their consumers.

The bank has also stated that the customers can get their account information by giving a missed call on the toll free number 9223766666 or by sending message on this number by typing ‘BAL’ as the body of the text from the registered mobile number only.
