“Phishing is a global problem faced by Banks worldwide. It is an attempt to 'fish' for your banking details. Phishing could be an e-mail that appears to be from a known institution like banks/a popular website. Please note that Banks will never ask for confidential data like login and transaction password, One Time Password (OTP), Unique Reference No (URN) etc,” ICICI Bank’s website says.
The bank has advised its customers to keep PIN card number and other critical account related information, confidential.
In case of loss of money due to any fraudulent activity, the account holder should immediately inform the bank. The banking regulator - Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) rules are quite clear which say that if a customer lodges a complaint with the bank immediately, he will be paid back the entire amount within 10 days of the incident.

The bank had in March reported fraudulent activities to the authorities after many of its customers in Mumbai lost money due to skimming activities done by fraudsters. The money was withdrawn from the accounts of several customers after their ATM cards were cloned.
