    I always had the impression that konkanis r the smartest people regarding finance, business. But this man proved me wrong, banks keep reminding us every time that do not share ur personal details like aadhar,OTP with anyone. Also Bank staff will never call it's customers for whatsoever reason.

    Bank staffs are calling dear. They say dont share OTP ....yes. .... ? It happened with me also....last month i got a call from the bank regarding the ATM Card. Just previous day i visited the bank and bank didn't say anything about it. I called the manager and asked him anyone is operating from your bank other than the staff?? He said yes...I asked him, how come you give our personal no. And account details to others with regard to atm 🏧card and other activities? Your staff could have told me yesterday. He started saying, person is deputed by the H.O. I asked him, how we will come to know who is genuine and who is fake ??? He said sorry...I heard from others also, even bank staff call for installation of internet banking/apps etc. People get confused. When bank take accurate/upto date/proper documents, how such frauds happen ? Fraudsters money accumulates in their bank only right ? Then to which bank it gone also should be known by sender bank.....I feel these frauds are happening through bank employees. Data bank...

    when you get a message that your account is blocked, just do a small transaction thru gpay or atm... then you will know whether the message is true or not.. if it is really blocked, go to nearest branch...

    Height of online frauds these days. Police inform public thru various Medea channels that don’t give aadhar bank or pan card or OTP to anyone who has s calling you. In spite of this people are getting into fraudsters hands. More and more public awareness is necessary thru various tv channels and other media in all the languages . Request all to be extra careful in dealing such calls, messsges.

    This is an advice for all those who believe in technology. No bank world over will call upon a account holder to inform or inquire or to update any requirement of the bank or of the government. If any one receives a message or call on any form of media pertaining to their bank account, or purchase on line or some get rich quick scheme or cheap medicare, etc. consider it a red flag and ignore it. Approach your bank and inquire and be surprised that there were no such calls or inquiries from any of their staff, and give them the fraudsters number so that the bank can lodge an official complaint with the cyber crime department. Thats why the banks has put restrictions on amounts to transactions per time or per day to ensure fraudsters do not stand a chance to clean an account. Many a times bank employees are hand in gloves with fraudsters too! A million times it has appeared in all forms of public media not to fall for on line fraudsters even if they call in the name of any law authorities, as no law authorities are authorised to call even a criminal over the phone to a police station or to the IT Dept. because of the ease in which frauds take sadly take place in this era of IT technology!
