Recently SBI alarmed people about the ongoing EMI fraud scheme during the lockdown period. Fraudsters are calling up customers with an offer of deferring the EMI payments, and trying to borrow card details and eventually the OTP. This has been apparently a very common bank fraud and banks have informed countless number of times to the customers via text saying that they never call them for their OTP.
State Bank of India (SBI) has an alert message for its customers. In a post on microblogging site Twitter, the bank said, “Fraudsters are using new ways and techniques to commit cybercrime. Here’s a new way people are scammed in India,” SBI said in a tweet.
