Hello guys, this is very serious point I am posting here.
Recently I had applied for tata credit card and got in a week.
To my surprise the day I received the card, I got a call from number +918586925694 , a girl claiming to represent SBI credit card.
She said you must have received your card now but it is deactivated state. You have to get it activated and I will help you on that.
I said ok , as soon as she asked me my card 16 digit number, I immediately got alerted that this is going to be a fraud. I asked her this is not right to give full card details and I can give last 4 digit, she said I am not asking any pin or something confidential.
I did not say anything to her. Suddenly she told me give me the 3 digit number appears back on the card. I got 100 % confident then it’s a serious fraud. I gave her wrong cvv, she tried multiple times and told me this is not right, can you confirm again. Later I abuse her so much that she hanged up the phone.
My biggest surprise was she knows my date of birth but how could she know my card expiry date.
I mailed SBI credit card help mail I’d pointing serious leak in their system.
Just wanted to alert you guys.
Please block this number in advance.

Few days before i received my paytm sbi card, i have set up application and disable international transactions. After 3-4 days i got message that Trxn. of Rs.1.00 on your SBI Card ending XXXX at GOOGLE *TEMPORARY HOLD on 21-01-21 was declined as International Online usage is not activated on your credit card. To activate, SMS ECOMI 0368 to 5676791

Card expiry date is based on issuance date. If someone knows you received card recently they know the expiry date.

Same thing happened to me , applied for SBI card and the moment it came these fraud calls started . Also calls from HSBC and rbl saying you have pre approved offer , dunno if the later is genuine
I had it traced by a friend of mine 2 of the calls were made from UP and 1 from Delhi . All of them were Female.
Sim cards used for these calls are of old illiterate people whose identity was stolen. Had to drop it since it was a dead end

Previously I owned HDFC AXIS no spam calls for the past 5 years . The cell no I use for the cc is completely private .

So yes SBI employee or servers are getting breached

SBI cards uses third party call center services. They know, each and every thing about the card except the CVV.
When you receive a call, claiming that from SBI, your mind should automatically be tuned to say “NO”.
All options are available in the SBI cards app/website. You dont need any one to explain about the offers.

while such leaks are common, from on-line marketplace site’s agents or logistics companies too, off late (6-8 weeks) on one of our numbers, SBI General Insurance has created a mess.

some branch of theirs (or some employees or data entry operator) has enmasse uploaded one of our mobile numbers evil 😠 on mutiple proposals and policies.

all their policy document links, other details are accesible to us via that number.
after even some lady’s details too got sent, we even reported to the number listed as nodal officer.
but still😧 receiving messages (for even new clients, new policies, loans).

despite calling the relevant branch of SBI General Insurance and their centralised contact centre, they are sending confidential, sensitive details of others to random number (our number).

and we have absolutely no dealing with ANY SBI group company. [number is with us since 7+ years (so it cannot be some old database being used by mistake)].

Guys, I have applied for SBI card, still not yet approved though; got some 5-6 verifications calls (+1 physical address verification) till now confused All are asking hell lot of details to verify (mostly name, dob, address, job, Id details; NO card details since I haven’t got laughing ); I am not getting if they are genuine or fake (hard to tell), but since only these details are getting asked I am telling them (just skeptical about giving away the Id details)…
Is this common for SBI to do this much verification ? any suggestions ?

It’s common. Not sure why the physical verification took place. It is not mandatory now.
But I am sure the say you get your card you will get some many fraud calls either to activate the card or credit rewards points
