Beware of cyber frauds happening in the name of KYC updation.
Cybercrime has increased a lot during the Corona period. Cyber frauds are targeting people in different ways. For some time now this game is running in the name of KYC Updation. In such a situation, the country’s largest public sector bank has warned its customers.
Actually a user tweeted to SBI and said that I have received a message. It says that your SBI account will be suspended. In such a situation, update the KYC of your account. Along with this a link has been shared. In response to this tweet, SBI said that if any such account holder receives such email, SMS, phone call and any link is shared together, then beware of such phone calls and messages. The bank has appealed to its customers not to share their personal details in such calls or messages. Especially do not share at all like User ID, Password, Debit Card Number, PIN / CVV / OTP.
