How to Avoid Online Fraud?

  • Never share your name and password with anyone. Passwords, PINs, or account numbers should never be disclosed to anyone and should not be sent via email, phone call, or text message.
  • Never click on links or attachments sent to you by strangers. These tricks are used to download malware on your phone to steal your information.
  • Do not conduct any online banking or financial transactions on public Wi-Fi networks as cyber criminals can easily access information from there. It is very easy for hackers to intercept your data there.
  • If you become a victim of fraud, call the cyber helpline number 1930.
