State Bank of India (SBI), the country’s largest public sector bank, has issued an important information for customers holding fixed deposits. The bank has warned the customers to stay away from the thugs who call themselves employees of SBI Bank and talk about making a fixed deposit and get to know their information from the customers.
SBI has advised customers to avoid such scams by posting a post on Twitter. In this tweet, SBI has said that in recent reports, it has been found that cybercriminals have created online fixed deposits in the accounts of customers with the intention of committing fraud.
With this, the bank wrote that we request all our customers not to share their bank details with anyone. Do not get caught up in these fraudsters who tell themselves to SBI. We never ask for personal information like Password / OTP / CVV / Card number etc. on the phone.

Don’t get bogged down by FREE gifts
If someone calls you and promises to give you a free gift or reward money, then do not ever get in the trouble of it. Let me tell you that there is no way that you can earn money overnight free. When withdrawing money from Atime, pay attention to all things. Once it is checked that things like hidden cameras and scammers are installed in it. Apart from this, take care of everything while inserting the PIN and if necessary, cover it with your other hand while entering the PIN.
