Advance Fee Fraud


In advance fee frauds, fraudsters seek your permission to transfer funds to your account from a wealthy benefactor.


In such cases, you will be approached through a letter, fax, email or telephone from someone claiming to be a senior bank official. Victims are repeatedly requested to part with sums of money in order to help the transfer process and as the fraud progresses a considerable amount of money is lost. The promised transfer, of course, never happens.


  •  Always be wary of unsolicited emails offering large sums of money.
  • Inform suspicious activities to our Call Centre on 1700-710-710.



  • Give out your Credit Card, Password, PIN or account information through unsolicited emails.
  • Transfer money as instructed in these emails.
  • Respond to such suspicious emails.
