How It Works

The SBI YONO text directs the reader to a malicious link. Their aim is to pretend they want to help you reactivate your suspended account, but don’t be deceived; these people are scammers.

In the course of clicking the malicious link and inputting your personal information, you would input your credit card details into their system, handing them the information they need to steal money from your card. Doing this will be giving up your credit card information to thieves.

What To Do

When you receive such messages and want to be sure it is not scam, do the following:

  • send the organisation an email to confirm the authenticity of the text
  • if the organisation says the message is not from them, delete the message immediately
  • do not, out of curiosity, click the link or call that number to see where it leads

Conclusion

Phishing scams are on the rise these days, and a lot of people have lost sensitive information to hackers

We have come across scams like this a lot. What you have to do firstly is not to click on links you do not understand or call strange numbers, and always be sure the source of the message is genuine before you engage.
