01.Not to Share your Card Details
Do Not Entertain any one who’s asking your card details not even the Government Officials, Your Bank Authorities, Your Friends because once you give away your CVV or other details of your card. You will no longer have control over the transactions on your card.
02.Do Not Write Passwords on the Debit / Credit Card
This learning came from my very near relative. She was travelling from the railways and someone snatched her purse. She lost her cash & card in it too. Before she could realise within 25 minutes – more 25000 was withdrawn from her account. She had written all her passwords on the cards backside. It became very easy for the thrived to steal her money.
03. Do not share your OTP
Once in a movie about banking frauds, the woman promised an old man of a 20 day trip to Maldives asked for his Card Details & then she asked 6 digit Booking Code which was supposed to be the OTP but the old man had no clue of the scam. Eventually he lost 75000 Rupees.
04. Do not Submit Aadhar Card to anyone
As per the law, it is not required for any Indians to submit their Aadhar Card details to anyone. All Bank Accounts and Everything is mentioned on your Aadhar Card & it is supposed to be the most personal document.
If required, submit Masked Aadhar Card. You can go to the UID Aadhar Website and download your Masked Aadhar Card from them.
