Its all about your sensitive information, your information is stolen or phishing. Be aware!

Recently you must have listen about reports of phishing attacks on several Banks' websites. In this cases the customer is led to believe that the emails are sent from an authentic website which resembles the Banks' website.

Phishing is a technique employed by scamsters to illegally procure personal information of customers like an account numbers, debit card numbers, Internet banking user ids and passwords, etc. There are too many tricks to botain this information but the most frequently used method is to send a spam email to a large database of email ids say, all of gmail ids or all yahoo ids etc. The spam email is designed in such a way as to look exactly like an email sent by the targeted bank or a company.

I would also like to inform you that if any bank change his name( for exp. UTI change to AXIS BANK LTD), in case someone receive any e-mail or a phone call claiming or appearing to be from the bank, requiring to provide your personal sensitive informations pertaining to about your bank account (account number, debit card number, internet banking login ID & password), I request you to ignore the same.

DO NOT PROVIDE ANY SENSITIVE INFORMATION. PLEASE ALSO REPORT THE DETAILS OF SUCH SUSPICIOUS E-MAIL TO THE NEAREST. The more bank have a policy not to seek or send such information through email OR phone call.

Some Tips for User ID & Password security:

Always use different login and transaction passwords.

Always access Internet Banking only by visiting bank's website

Change your passwords at frequent intervals.

Never disclose your passwords to anyone, including family, friends and people claiming to be bank employees.

If you forget your password or stolen, immediately report to the nearest branch or call phone banking unit.
