Better use the indigenous Naam app instead of Truecaller. With the introduction of TRAI's CNAP (Calling Name Presentation) all these caller ID apps going to become obsolete soon anyway. @sherlock @kiki1988

A lot of people have asked me for DOB to verify that I am the account holder. No one asked for PAN till now. 

Check the authenticity of the mobile number.

How to check that, apart from blindly trusting caller ID.

Can check with multiple caller id providers. On websites of the respective company.

Is that si?
(Not a truecaller user)

I often get told that your name and photo shown on it are different. I am like I do not know, I do not use.

May be one of the numbers was previously with someone who used that software.

I wonder how us using or not using matters, considering it skims our data from the devices or others WITHOUT OUR CONSENT.

Dreaming of owning a franchise?🏢

But if you submit your details on these sites,

you can get duped by paying a huge price!📉 sob

Fraudsters create landing pages that mimic popular brands' franchise portals. After you submit your details, they pose as company representatives man🏻💼, lure you into making multiple payments💸, and disappear, leaving you with no money fearful.

DOs:

🟢 Always double-check the legitimacy of a website before submitting any personal or financial details.

DON'Ts:

🔴 Don't make upfront payments, especially during the initial stages of franchise inquiries.
