More Dire Warnings from SBI and Tips to Stay SAFE
In a recent warning, the bank had shared a few tips with its customers to stay safe. It said that first and foremost, the customers should not share their OTP, PIN, CVV, and UPI PIN with unknown persons. According to the State Bank of India, customers should never tell their OTP (one time password), PIN, debit or credit card CVV number to anyone. Since most of the frauds are committed this way, the bank said that customers should take precaution if someone on the phone call, after taking the name of the bank, warns you to block your card and asks for changing password, OTP or CVV number written on the back of the card.
Cautioning the customers through its Twitter account, the SBI clarified that the bank never asks for information like user ID, PIN, password, CVV, OTP, VPA (UPI) from its customers, who must take care of these things while doing banking transactions.
