Just overcame a scam phone call received on Mobile from an unknown source +91 8348562902, with caller named Mr. Rakesh, intimating about:
Your SBI ATM Card is Blocked for Not Linking Aadhaar Card. If you want to stop this action please take your ATM card in hand and provide us the 16 digit number written over it. This 16 digit number will reactivate you ATM Card.
when I failed to believe that he’s calling from State Bank of India Office, he says…
Sir, when your card gets blocked, then only you will get to know about where I am calling from. Okay?
Person disconnects, when he failed to reveal any bit of information.
Well, I didn’t disclose any information over phone and immediately reported about this call over State Bank of India Toll Free number which took me 5 minutes of waiting time. Mr. Rupam, State Bank of India representative appreciated the effort for reporting down and advised safety concern over phone scams and fraud attempts. He also noted this mobile number to highlight in their internal records.
Safety Advice to Overcome Phone Scams
Never disclose any information, related to you or your family over call.
Never disclose any requested details from the caller, like OTP, Username or Password, Account Number, Bank Address, ATM Card number etc. These details are confidential and should only remain between you and the bank authority.
Always keep note of all information provided by the caller, this can help you file FIR in police station or at least to State Bank of India, in case of any threat or fraud.
Install truecaller application in your mobile phone to filter out Fake and Spam callers.
Beware and be safe fellers, you never know what’s up for you!
Recently ordered a Apple OEM product online via Amazon India portal and that’s how changed the absolute definition of…
Original Equipment Manufacturer
Opposite Equivalent Manufacturer.
Two ways to find out what’s genuine and what’s fake:
Firstly make sure when you receive a product online, it must have registered office and phone number of the manufacturer mentioned in the packaging as well as the invoice. Doesn’t matter if it’s sealed pack, all companies abide to have such information printed on the packaging.
Secondly, if there’s a modal number engraved on the product, then go ahead and Google it. You can also get it authenticated from the principal company as well.
Because of such experiences, people fear to buy online and that’s where it hurts eCommerce industries. Amazon India must authenticate such request and charge serious penalties to such sellers who are responsible for such let downs. It hurts seriously!
Reviewed on Amazon India:
Product mentioned as Apple OEM isn’t genuine at all.
I was amazed to see the price dropped by 30-40%, so I ordered it instantly, being in impression that seller had a stock clearance sale or something on positive note. But it looked dicey when the product got shipped in 2-3 days and finally when I saw the packaging, in no time, fired the request for refund!
Apple products are packed nicely and that’s why it’s Apple and we’re paying almost 10 times more than a local product to get the feel. Now, I won’t say that this product isn’t working, but it’s not what it’s described, hence NOT GENUINE.
ZERO STAR for the Seller because, that’s the minimum we can input.
ONE STAR for Amazon for amazing door-step delivering a non-genuine product and accepting my refund immediately as it got delivered.
Sometimes, I feel glad about being heard over Social Media. And today was just not that day, especially after checking an immature twitter mention from a World famous bank, couldn’t be more stupid and dumb, please read more stupid and dumb.
Why It’s Stupid and Dumb Relevancy
The original tweet’s about a Quora comment over a WordPress Development question asked, related to Shopping Cart website. But HDFC Bank social media team finds it interesting to throw a Rs. 5000 Cashback Offer for Every Shopper here. It’s totally irrelevant to the nature of tweet and seems that HDFC social media team is just completing the targets by applying immature social media strategies. Duh!
Here’s the original tweet embed of the attempt from HDFC bank’s twitter handle.
Was browsing through some kitchen ware products, where detected this glitch in one of the products by comparing with another e-commerce portal. The MRP price and Selling price were same, however the discount percentage shown had discrepancy. Check out the screenshot below:
Above image clearly states that Flipkart discount computation has some error, as 9% of 1510 is 1375 where it shows 1360. Is Flipkart trying to match pricing with SnapDeal, just like that? Or can we just ignore and continue to shop blindly. 😉
Anyway, after all these systems are humanly made, no offense guys, but stop fooling people around with such superficial glitches.
