Please make sure that the State Bank of India (SBI) does not contact customers for personal or banking information via SMS. This is nothing but a trap. If you’re not careful, you can lose your entire savings just by swiping.

SBI advises customers that if they suspect any deception from a message, they should immediately remove the message. SBI customers must not share personal information such as card numbers / CVV / PIN numbers and other details with others, even if requested by the bank.
SBI customers need to be aware that phishing attacks use both social engineering and technical impersonation to steal their personal identity data and financial account credentials. SBI customers need to be aware of the process by which phishing attacks occur. The process is as follows:
1) Internet banking users seem to receive fraudulent emails from legitimate internet addresses.
2) The email invites the user to click on the hyperlink provided in the email.
3) When a user clicks on a hyperlink, they are redirected to a fake website that resembles a real internet banking site.
4) Email usually promises compensation for compliance or warns of imminent penalties for non-compliance.
5) Users are required to provide sensitive information such as login / profile or transaction passwords and bank account numbers.
6) The user provides the details in good faith and clicks the “Submit” button.
7) User sees error page
8) The user has become a prey to phishing attacks.
SBI customers need to be aware of these scams and be careful not to be victims of such scams.
