Beware of Phishing

What is Phishing?

Phishing ( a variant of fishing) means when some fraudulent people “fish” for information.

More often than not , to capture authentication information, that can then be used by them to make illegal transactions.

A phishing attemp is in the form of an e-mail inviting you to click a particular link. The e-mail itself appears in the first glance as initiated by your bank.

All you need to do is to ignore such e-mails and define it as a spam. Dig deeper , you will find the email address of sender is not right.

PLEASE NOTE THAT NO BANK WILL COLLECT INFORMATION, including userid password etc, in a e-mail or over the phone. You are well within your rights to refuse response. Also YOU MUST bring it to the notice of your bank.
