Meanwhile, SBI recently asked its customer to be cautious of calls and messages on WhatsApp due to a new scam. According to the bank, scammers are contacting SBI customers on WhatsApp and citing fake messages about winning a SBI lottery or a lucky draw reward, following which they are asking the customers to contact a fraud number that the scammers are claiming is an official SBI hotline. "Cybercriminals are waiting for just one mistake--please do not trust such fake callers or forwarded messages," SBI said in an advisory.
