ICICI warns users

Banks are making many efforts to protect their customers, but despite that, there has been an increase in bank fraud in the last few years. ICICI Bank has warned its customers about possible fraud in a tweet, ‘Beware of fraudsters trying to persuade you to share your UPI PIN over the phone. Stay safe, practice #SafeBanking. This tweet is becoming quite viral.

Fraud is happening like this

According to the bank, many scammers are using the WhatsApp or Facebook accounts of customers to rapidly send messages to their contacts. Since the request comes from a known source, many contacts are transferring the required amount. ICICI warns customers, ‘In such cases, be cautious and always verify. If your WhatsApp or Facebook account has been hacked in any way, please notify the authorities.” In another blog, ICICI also shared some tips to stay safe with mobile banking or internet banking.

Tips to stay safe with mobile banking

– If you have received a message and it has a URL, then do not click on it.

– If you must share your mobile with someone else, be sure to clear the browsing history, cache, and temporary files and block your mobile banking application.
– Download apps only from official app stores like Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and more.
– Never reveal personal information or online banking credentials via e-mail or text message as these can be used for identity theft.
– Log out of online mobile banking or application as soon as you complete your transaction. Also, make sure you close that window. Always verify app permissions and only grant permissions that have context relevant to the purpose of the app.
– Avoid using unsecured, unknown Wi-Fi networks. If you encounter any kind of banking fraud, report it to the bank immediately.
