Phishing is a form of deception based on the use of misleading e-mails. These e-mails appear to have been sent by a financial institution, authority or well-known third party, whose identity (trademark, logo, etc.) is usurped to "fish" for personal or confidential data, including customers identity like username and password/PIN.
Such e-mails generally refer to fraudulent websites that, at first sight, resemble very closely those of well-known financial institutions or authorities and are intended to deceive customers. The request for information is often justified by referring to the application of so-called security measures or the updating of databanks.
An important piece of advice:
Never give out personal or confidential details, such as passwords, secret codes, account numbers or numbers of bank or identity cards, by e-mail.
Do not click on the links given in any e-mails. Instead type the full web address on the internet browser.

In general, the URL of a secured website begins with "https". The "s" stands for "secure ". This means that the website is entirely secure.
At the bottom of the secured web page, an icon appears showing a little yellow, closed padlock.
When you double-click on the icon, a safety certificate appears. This certificate shows the owner of the website. Always check that this ends by loans.indiabulls.com
Take care of your personal information
Your User ID and Internet password are the keys to your online internet access. Never write them down, give them to anyone else or include them in an e-mail. Destroy documents containing personal information securely, and be very cautious in posting personal details to social networking sites on the internet, as criminals can use this information to commit fraud. Remember that protecting your User ID, passwords and security details are your responsibility.
