    How to recognized trusted sites

    Reply
    • Hi,

      Trusted sites are those which can be easily found on Google searches in the first results page. If you are making a payment or entering personal login information, look for the HTTPS and padlock symbol in the top-left corner along with the address of the URL.

    I use every point mentioned here, still hackers made fraud transaction worth 22 lacs on 27 December 2014 by 18 transactions in 9 different bank accounts. Law enforcing Authorities and all Banks are clue less to track culprits who are roaming free. We understand that crime is a step ahead of law but are unable to understand their modes-operandi so as to protect ourselves at least in in future. Can you specifically address this issue and contribute intelligence to strengthen investigations?

    Reply
    • Hi,

      Firstly, we are sorry to hear about the loss of money you have faced. We can understand this must be a traumatic experience for you. However, with such a large amount of money involved, this is a case that falls solely under legal jurisdiction. We cannot comment on the nature of the attack or the identity of the culprits either. Since the sum involved is quite high, we can imagine that this must be a targeted attack by someone in the know and not just a random phishing attack that happened by chance. Unfortunately, we can only say that the authorities are the only people who can track the perpetrators down and there is not much we can do to help.

      We hope you receive a successful conclusion to this ordeal soon.

      Best regards.
