A little caution takes care of a lot of trouble.

The Reserve Bank of India has issued a warning to customers about this in a tweet from its official Twitter handle RBI SEZ. Through its Twitter handle, RBI has told that customers should not share their PIN, OTP and any information related to bank account. The central bank has said that if a customer’s card is stolen or lost, immediately block the card.
In addition to this, the bank has said that in addition to this, customers should be alert for information related to any kind of KYC detail and do not share any such information with anyone. The RBI had recently issued a warning about new fraud using mobile numbers. According to the notice, fraud is being done from mobile numbers similar to toll free numbers of banks or financial institutions.
Recently, the RBI had issued a warning about a fraud phone call in the name of the bank. The central bank had said that suppose the number of phone calls coming from the bank is 1600-123-1234. These fraudsters then take a number for it, just like 600-123-1234 and register it as a bank’s toll free number on a truckler or other service provider.
