This person claimed that he is a software engineer and received a fake SMS in the name of HDFC Bank. He has received a phishing SMS link in the name of HDFC Bank.
The SMS read, “Dear customer Your HDFC account has been closed, please click on the link to update your PAN number. However, instead of ignoring the fake MMS, the software engineer decided to outsmart the scammers. He replied, “Ok hai bhaiya”, after which he was asked to click on the link again. The technical expert then told the scammer that the site that opened on clicking the link was fake and was easy to identify. The software engineer offered to help build a duplicate website for the bank that looked exactly like the original.
He told the swindler, “It is easy to detect that it is a scamming website, I am a software engineer, I can help you redesign the page.” He further said, “For Rs 20,000 I will help you create exactly like HDFC netbanking site.” After this the scammer asked for some working samples and this software engineer sent a fake video of the bank site.
