Reserve Bank of India on 26 May 2014 issued a Press Release warning about a fake website in its name. At the time of posting this article, Google has classified the respective website as a Phishing website and blocked access to it.
There is no information as to how many Indians were gullible enough to apply on-line for “RBI Savings Account”.
The website in order to open the accounts was asking from the internet surfers their phone numbers and also phone numbers of next of kin. The phone numbers so harvested would be valuable tools for further fooling the public.
