How this fraud happened with PNB Bank Manager?

As per the sources, a message is being circulated on whatsapp groups to download a mobile app. The name of the app is PNB BANK UPDATE.apk and this is not a genuine app. This is a fake app that is not available on google play store.

Once the user downloads this app, the details of the mobile are remotely accessed by hackers. These hackers can steal all your confidential data such as UPI PIN, ATM PIN, etc. and easily commit financial frauds.

It is important to be cautious when downloading apps on your phone. Cybercrime is increasing, and if you are not careful, you could become a victim. Make sure to thoroughly check and verify any app before downloading it to protect yourself from potential harm.
