  2. Refrain from clicking on any buttons such as “Learn More” or “Sign Up”, when receiving content from an ambiguous source. These may redirect users to a fake BCA webpage or malware link.
  3. Confidential data, such as debit card/credit card number, PIN, CVV/CVC, OTP, etc., should never be shared carelessly.
