The State Bank of India (SBI) has issued a warning to all of its customers. In a post on the microblogging website, Twitter, the bank said that fraudsters are coming up with new ways and techniques to mug people.

The bank wrote, “Fraudsters are using new ways and techniques to commit cybercrime. Here’s a new way people are scammed in India,”.

The bank further explained that in the new way to dupe people the fraudsters send a message with a link that once opened looks of it seems exactly like the SBI Net Banking page. And with such similarities to the real app, users are getting conned by the fake application.

The bank also said, “If you receive such an SMS please delete it. Do not click on the link and do not share your credentials,”.

India’s largest lender is asking its customers that if they come across any such message or instance, they should immediately inform the bank via e-mail at epg.cms@sbi.co.in or report.phishing@sbi.co.in, also, the customers are also encouraged to report such instances to the government’s cybercrime branch at https://cybercrime.gov.in/Default.aspx

The bank informed it customers saying, “Please note that http://www.onlinesbi.digital is a fake website and SBI customers should not fall prey to messages which ask them to update their password or account information on the above mentioned website,”.

Making fake social media handles and websites have become very common nowadays hence it has become all the more important to be more vigilant and be able to spot the fake ones when carrying out any monetary transaction.

In the first week of April, SBI alerted its customers of the ongoing EMI fraud where the scammers call the customers pretending to be calling from SBI an option to defer the EMI payments for which they as their card details and eventually the OTP.

Also, last month itself, the bank issued another warning telling people who are willing to donate to PM-CARES Fund to be aware of the fake ids. “Beware of the fake UPI IDs that are making the rounds in the guise of Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance & Relief in Emergency Situations a.k.a. PM Cares,”.
