Be aware of imitated Emails in the name of Reserve Bank of India (RBI)

It has come to the notice of Reserve Bank of India that some unscrupulous entities/scamsters are imitating RBI mails for fraudulent purposes. Most of such mails are sent using fake domains, which do not belong to the Reserve Bank of India, but these could be deceptively similar involving use of words such as RBI, RESERVEBANK, PAYMENT, etc. In this regard, it is informed that the correct mail domain of RBI is “rbi.org.in” and mail addresses of RBI officials are of the type “abc@rbi.org.in”.

Members of public as well as financial institutions are therefore requested to be careful about such fraudulent activities before taking cognizance or any action on such mails.
