The Cyber Crime Cell of the city police has urged the people not to share details of credit/debit cards with anyone.

The appeal comes following several reports of people losing money by sharing details of cards with strangers, who posed as as bank officials, over phone. People should not share details of credit/debit cards, PIN numbers, OTP or CVV number with anyone, even if they introduce themselves as bank officials. “Sharing these details will result in people losing their money,” they said.

“Make sure that the cards are swiped only once in POS machines and only the card owner should enter the PIN. Do not fall prey to dubious calls, emails or messages,” police advised the public
