RBI is cautioning people that the central bank, which controls the monetary policy of the Indian rupee, "has not developed any such software and nor has it sent any such mail asking online banking customers to update their account details to secure their online accounts." The RBI does not even have any mail id with extension@rbi.com, the central bank says.



"Members of public receiving such mails should not open the attachment and/or try to download the attachment on their computers. This is a phishing mail and accessing the mail in any manner could result in identity theft," the bank has warned.



The bank is now planning a massive pan-India publicity campaign to educate people on such scams and create awareness about not responding to such emails or messages.



People have lodged complaints with the central bank, saying that fraud emails are not just restricted to RBI, but may also allegedly come in the name of Income Tax department, International Monetary Fund and World Bank, with promises of a job or a lottery victory and ask for personal data for security issues.
