2. Collect cash out – “Call the helpline mentioned in the lobby, when ATM instructs you to ‘collect cash’, without dispensing it,” according to SBI.
3. Never share PIN – SBI has advised people to never share their ATM PIN with anyone.
4. SMS Alert – SBI has asked customers to register their mobile numbers to receive regular transaction alerts, where they would receive an SMS every time they make a transaction from their account. Previously, SBI has asked their customers to be careful of the fraudulent emails which offered freebies and rewards and looked too good to be true because they often turn out as traps. SBI urged people to not click on those links and share any of their personal information.
Deals that appear too good to be true, often turn out to be traps. Delete any email that promises freebies and rewards. Don’t click on the offer link and share any of your personal information!
