Received Message To Apply For IT Refund Formally? Beware It's Fake
 

The bank has asked customers not to share confidential information with anyone and also avoid clicking on suspicious links. And on receipt of any such messages, recipient should immediately report it to the police and the cyber cell.

SBI further added that in case you happen to click on the links sent over to you by hackers, you will be redirected to another site, wherein you may be asked of your personal information such as Id, password etc. With such information at hand, hackers will then be able to access your account and rob you off your bank balance.

In the previous instance, SBI warned customers against responding to text messages that said their accounts have been suspended and they need to click on the given link for getting their account reactivated. "When you receive any message similar to this (as shown in the image above), not click on such URLs; Never share your personal and/or account details on any suspicious links. Check your account status with your branch only. Report such messages immediately to the local police authorities. Be vigilant, be safe," SBI had tweeted.
