State Bank Of India
State Bank of India (SBI) has alerted its customers regarding the increasing cases of online fraud. The bank issued an alert through a post on Twitter, alerting people that fraudsters are cheating people in the name of their Know Your Customer (KYC) verification. SBI said in a tweet, KYC fraud is real and it has spread across the country. Fraudsters are sending text messages posing as bank/company representatives to get your personal details.
SBI account holders also need to be careful as recently India’s largest lenders have allowed documents for KYC update to be accepted through mail or post. This will benefit customers who are facing difficulties due to the local lockdown imposed to prevent the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
