If you are sending money through UPI, then how to avoid fraud, we are telling you this post:
Do not share such confidential information with anyone including card number, expiry date, UPI PIN, OTP. If you are asked to give such information by someone pretending to be an official representative from a bank or a third party mobile app, ask them to send you an official email (do not share your email ID because Banks or third party apps will already have their email IDs in their records).
Only respond to emails from your bank’s official domain or third party app.

If you come to know about any suspicious account, then tell your bank about it immediately.
