The public sector lender asked customers not to respond to unsolicited offers, however attractive, received through emails, SMSs and other social media. It also asked them to avoid clicking on attachments received in mails from unknown sources.Earlier in April, SBI shared a similar notification cautioning customers of scanning QR code from unknown sources.
