Reserve Bank has once again warned members of the public to remain about the activities of unscrupulous elements. In a press release issued in Mumbai, RBI has urged the public not to get lured by fictitious offers, lottery winnings or remittance of cheap funds in foreign currency.
The apex bank reiterated that it does not hold any account for individuals and neither send any SMS, letter or email for intimating award of lottery funds, etc. RBI has said that its only official and genuine website is (https://www.rbi.org.in/ or https://rbi.org.in/) and members of public should not get misled by fake websites with similar addresses beginning with ‘Reserve Bank’, ‘RBI’, etc., along with fake logos. RBI has requested public members not to respond to such SMS or emails and immediately report such cases to cybercrime authorities.
