Be Aware of Fraudulent activities of Cyber cafe and others

Do not visit any private Cyber Cafe for SPARSH related work.  They may cheat you in various ways.  Several instances have been reported in this regard.  Even though it has been reported that the entire pension has been taken into the bank account of Cyber Cafe owner.

Some scammers/fraudsters may have created ‘phishing’ websites to steal personal and banking data of pensioners by asking them to update details on SPARSH. The message will have a link where they tell you to update profile details including NOK Aadhaar and PAN details. Please do not click any such link. All SPARSH updation of data by PCDA is directly from banks and Record Offices. Pensioners are never asked directly for such information through SMS or e- mail. Further, the only link for the pensioner portal is www.sparsh.defence pension.gov.in. All other are fake.
