Do not use pub­lic In­ter­net fa­cil­i­ties and openo WiFi for In­ter­net bank­ing. Any­one can hack your ac­count and with­draw money.

Do not pro­vide pho­to­copies of both sides of the credit card to any­one. The card ver­i­fi­ca­tion value (CVV) which is re­quired for on­line trans­ac­tions is printed on the re­verse of the card. Any­one can use the card for on­line pur­chases if they know the num­ber.

Con­tact your bank if you did not get the SMS for credit/debit card trans­ac­tions or if your mo­bile phone has been de­ac­ti­vated with­out your re­quest.

Do not click on links in email seek­ing de­tails of your ac­count, they could be phish­ing emails from fraud­sters. Most re­puted com­pa­nies will ask you to visit their web­site di­rectly.

While us­ing a credit card for mak­ing pay­ments on­line, check if the web­site is se­cure. No­tify your bank / credit card is­sue if you do not re­ceive the monthly credit card state­ment on time. If a credit card is mis­placed or lost, get it can­celled im­me­di­ately.
