Beware of Fraudulent RBI Calls
I received a call from mobile number 7739193872 around 11 am on Dec 20.
The caller said he was an official of RBI’s ATM service cell of Shimla and that the call was regarding my bank account.It said that my account and ATM have been deactivate. He asked me for my debit card number, its month and year of validity, as well as the CVV number (the three-digit number behind the card) which I did not provided.
What RBI Said,
“Reserve Bank never communicates asking for bank account details for any purpose. In fact, Reserve Bank regularly appeals to members of the public not to respond to any phone calls or emails asking them to share details of their bank account or cards for any purpose”
