It added that there’s currently no such lottery scheme or lucky customer gift offers going on and that customers should think twice if they come across any such claims. Banking scams and frauds are quite common, and still, continue to take place. Not just with SBI but such scams take place with customers of other banks. The company also highlighted how making one mistake will give cybercriminals access to your bank accounts.
