Further, the public lender has requested customers not to click on any phishing links for KYC updates.

Online scams and fraud cases have become quite common these days. Keeping these frauds in mind, SBI has stepped up efforts to ensure the safety of its customers.

The bank recently took to microblogging platform Twitter to warn its customers about possible frauds. "Don't join these numbers and don't click on phishing links for KYC updates as they are not linked to SBI," the bank tweeted.

Along with this, the bank shared two phone numbers which are known to be involved in such phishing scams. The bank tweeted- “SBI customers are getting calls from two numbers. -+91-8294710946 and +91-7362951973 asking them to click on phishing link for KYC update. All SBI customers are requested not to click on any such phishing/suspicious links."

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, the number of banking frauds has seen an alarming rise. According to a report by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), banks in the country have registered a total of 4,071 fraud cases between April and September 2021.

Fraudsters are inventing new ways to fool the customers and grab their earnings. Due to this, SBI has urged customers to report if they receive any phishing calls or emails.

The bank also sent an email to its customers, which read, "If a customer receives a phishing email, he can report such cases to the bank at report.phishing@sbi.co.in."

If you find anything suspicious related to your bank account, make sure you report it to the bank immediately. SBI timely warns its customers about the ongoing frauds.
