The ‘Mooh Band Rakho’ campaign was initially launched by the bank to fight Covid 19 Coronavirus pandemic and it has now been extended to fighting cyber fraud.
On Monday an Indian banking and financial services company, HDFC Bank Ltd. announced the launch of ‘Mooh Band Rakho,’ a campaign to preventing frauds and increase awareness on cyber frauds.

In a statement, the bank said that as part of the campaign, HDFC bank will be conducting about 1,000 workshops in the next four months across the country.
“Following simple steps such as not sharing CVV, credit/debit card details, net banking/ mobile banking login ID and password over phone, expiry date, OTP, SMS, email and social media can help the general public keep their money safe. This campaign will talk about this and more”.
The campaign of the HDFC Bank also supports the International Cyber Fraud Awareness Week 2020, the global movement to minimise the impact of fraud which is being held from 15th November 21st November.
