The pandemic increased various financial frauds. One of the most common frauds that emerged is a loan fraud.
With people losing jobs and getting pay cuts despite having high financial commitments, fraudsters decided to make use of this helplessness and started offering easy loans without
any verification checks.
The Indian Banking sector in 2019-20 saw a 159% increase in dubious transactions that amounted to around Rs. 1.86 trillion. 45,613 cases of loan fraud were reported by 90 banks and financial institutions till March 31, 2021, according to media reports. This data is a proof to the fact that scammers go to the lowest levels to fraud people, by misusing their financial insecurities in the time of uncertainty.
There are countless articles and stories on fraudsters tricking users into sharing personal details such as bank account numbers, credit/debit card details, UPI PIN or OTP and transferring funds into their own accounts.
Did you know that frauds can even happen if you do not share the personal details mentioned above? Yes, frauds can happen through third-party apps too!
There are hundreds of free screen-sharing apps such as Screenshare, Anydesk, Teamviewer and more. These apps were originally used by engineers to fix issues on a phone from a remote location. These apps allow full access and control to a user's phone.
Fraudsters use third-party screen-sharing apps to control your phone for malicious purposes!
Remember: RBS Loan never asks you to install any third-party apps. DO NOT install apps on somebody's request. Apps like Anydesk/Teamviewer, etc are misused by fraudsters to control your phone & view your saved card/account details from their own location.

RBS Loan never asks for confidential or personal details. If you are asked for such details by anyone posing as a RBS Loan representative, please ask them to send you an email. Also, only respond to emails from the @rbsloan.in domain.
