How to identify scam calls?

Now the question arises that how can you find out whether a phone call is fake or not. There are some simple ways to do this:

Be careful from unknown numbers: If you get a call from an unknown number, be careful. If you don't recognize the number, search for it on Google before answering the call.

Do not give personal information: Do not share personal information like bank account number, Aadhaar number or OTP with any caller. Even if the person calling claims to be from a bank or government official, do not share your information.

Don't be hasty in taking decisions: Fraudulent callers may pressure you to take quick decisions. Remain calm and think before making any transaction or decision.


Record the call: If you suspect a scam call, record it. This recording can be used as evidence later.

Notify the bank or police: If you think you have received a fraudulent call, inform your bank or the police immediately.

Additional security measures: Install the Truecaller app on your phone. This app helps in identifying unknown numbers. Scam callers are always looking for new tactics, so it's important to remain vigilant. Think before trusting any call and take immediate action if you suspect a fake call.
