Brilliant it goes to Fake Income Tax Department Website – asking which bank do you have the account. For your information there is no such facility of selecting the bank account and it leads to your net banking account in real Income Tax department website. They made this fake site again amazing fraud job.
It goes to Bank website. I don’t want to put my user name or password here since I am not that much crazy.
So, Guys. Be aware it is pure high class fraud. Don’t be fallen into this trap.
