How to stay safe from all these…?
Staying safe from such online scams is in our hands. As good as we are careful. So how can we stay safe from such online scams? Here are the tips.
Beware of Calls: Do not for any reason answer calls that resemble toll-free numbers of banks or authorized companies without verifying them. Because, scammers cleverly manipulate caller IDs to make them look real.
Do not give out personal information: Under no circumstances should you share sensitive information like credit/debit card details, CVV, OTP, account numbers, date of birth or debit/credit card expiry dates with unknown callers.
Check out the official sources: Always visit the official website of your bank or authorized company to verify the number from which you received a call or SMS.
Do not share OTP : Avoid sharing OTPs with anyone. Don’t be fooled by schemes that require you to share one-time passwords (OTP) over phone calls, emails or SMS. These messages may contain cash back, reward points or any other similar offers. Don’t be fooled when you see this. The more careful you are, the better.
