Things to keep in mind so that you don't become a victim of banking fraud

Avoiding cyber fraud is challenging, but not impossible, in this day and age of social media and superfast internet. Government organizations and institutions issue warnings about cyber fraud from time to time, but people fall victim. A few days ago, RBI and Digital India provided some vital guidelines for avoiding online cyber fraud.

A few days ago, a video was tweeted from Digital India's former handle, quoting the RBI, in which online scams and how to avoid them were discussed. According to the video, you should never click on an unfamiliar link. The RBI has advised everyone to stay informed and cautious.

According to RBI, cybercriminals can try to trap you in any way. They can send you tempting messages, offer you part-time jobs, and also lure you into earning more money in less time.

Sometimes these criminals can cheat you in the name of OTP, sometimes in the name of KYC, and sometimes in the name of customer care. These criminals can also call you in the name of a customs officer or a policeman and ask for money. If you feel something like this, complain about it immediately.
