Please refer to the official website of SBI for correct customer care numbers. Refrain from sharing confidential banking information with anyone," the State-run lender said in a tweet.

At least for matters of finance and money and banking transactions, one must be extra careful in calling only mandated numbers and emails. And also extra careful in 'enter', pressing 'yes', etc on mobile as well as email attachments, etc.
