    • Hi Nandan,

      Can you tell us which account or service this occurred on? It would be best to contact the support team of that particular service in order to look into this.

      Regards.

    Really good article. This time I am getting these type of emails regarding bankaccount. They are giving links that click on it and do online banking without One time Passward (OTP). I was too confused and never click on that . Did Spam these email. Thanks Rajib.

    I’m not getting any news of your blog in my Quickheal Total Security software(v 17.00).
    What should I do?

    • Hi Tirthankar,

      In the Settings section, there is an option for turning on news updates and notifications. Once that is done, you will receive these messages on your PC.
