Yesterday Only we got a email which looks like a Punjab National Bank (PNB) email asking for One Time Password Registration but it was send to my email ID which i don't use for Internet Banking so i got suspicious about it as no bank send emails to there customer email id about the password and also it was send to wrong email ID. The mail which was send to us is attached below. Subscribe to Syconet World by Email.
The mail which we receive looks like original as it was send from PNB India [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Please don't respond to those emails.
Starting from May 1, 2011 all Internet Based transactions made via Online Web Interface will require an additional One Time Password (OTP).
This requirement has been made mandatory by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
Introduction of OTP is intended to reduce the possibility of fraudulent transactions and would safeguard you, the customer.
Kindly submit the form attached to this email in order to enroll your Online Bank Account in the new online protection System.
