- Advertisement -

PNB (Punjab National Bank) has released an important message for its customers. For the past few days, PNB customers have been receiving phishing messages from fraudsters. These messages appear to be genuine citing PNB’s 130th anniversary.

This is to inform the general public that a fraudulent message stating “PNB’s 130th Anniversary Government Financial Subsidy” is being circulated across digital platforms. These are fake messages and PNB brand name is being used to perpetuate different forms of fraud. In some cases, these frauds are attempts at identity theft and financial scams.

As a precautionary step, we also urge our customers not to divulge any confidential/personal/financial information via phone calls or emails and not to click/download any suspicious links, even if they appear legitimate.”
