RBI Fake Website
This fake RBI website is offering illegal banking services like saving account, current account, demat account, mutual fund, and credit card and term deposit services. In order to avail this services this website demands specific personal information from users.
RBI stated clearly in to press release that “The Reserve Bank clarifies that as India’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of India does not offer services offered by commercial banks, such as, savings bank account, current bank account or credit cards. As such, the question of the Reserve Bank offering online banking services, as is indicated on the fake site, does not arise. The Reserve Bank has cautioned members of public not to fall prey to spurious offers made by the fake website. The Reserve Bank has further cautioned members of public that applying on line on that website could result in compromising one’s own crucial personal information that may be misused to cause financial and other loss to them.”
Beware of this fake website. Remember rbi.org.in is official RBI website & RBI is never involved in running banking services. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is India’s central banking institution, which controls the monetary policy of the Indian rupee.
