In addition, cybercrime.gov.in is where the SBI encourages people to report crimes online. The central government is taking a number of measures to stop fraudulent Chinese rapid lending applications, which are causing controversy.
In addition to trapping borrowers in high interest rates and employing unethical loan extraction methods, the proliferation of rapid lending apps contributes to an increase in cybercrime.
SBI posted an infographic to its official Twitter account with the following message: “Please refrain from clicking on suspicious links or giving your information to a company posing as a Bank or Financial company.” Cybercrime should be reported at http://cybercrime.gov.in.
