Scammer Phone Call: SBI ATM Card Blocked for Not Linking Aadhaar Card

Phone Scam SBI Card Truecaller-com

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

  1. Never disclose any information, related to you or your family over call.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

Peace!

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.
