Phishing is an attempt by fraudsters to “fish” for your personal and confidential information, like User ID, Password, etc through e-mails. This information is then used to take money out of your bank account through a funds transfer.
Do’s And Don’ts
- Always type the website address. Be wary of clicking on links; they could lead to false websites.
- Do not transact or share confidential data on non-https websites.
- Do not enter your confidential data in any window that may pop – up while you are carrying out a financial transaction online.
- Do not open e-mails or attachments in e-mails sent from people you don’t know.
Beware of phishing emails. Your bank or Reserve Bank of India will never ask for your personal details. Do not share them with anyone.
