Here’s how you can outsmart fraudsters

While slice takes its security very seriously and works diligently towards providing a safe banking experience — we also believe it’s important to educate our members about the types of scams they may encounter. Read on to stay aware of what types of scams are lurking around.

If you come across anyone reaching out to you as slice “ambassadors” or “representatives” with empty promises using terms like “free money”, “credit limit increase”, “we can get your account approved.” etc. being said to you, it’s most likely a scam. You should also know that — no matter the platform — slice will NEVER ask you for your: 

  • Personal information address
  • OTP
  • Debit or credit card number/information
  • Money in exchange for services
  • Username and password

Some supremely ambitious scammers take the trouble to create fake slice social media profiles and email IDs with the motive of luring members to share their login information and account details. 

Are you speaking to a fraud representing slice? Here’s how you know

We know it can get a little tricky for users to identify scammers who approach them as slice employees. Until we’re able to hunt down every scammer in town, we’d urge you to double-check who you’re talking to. 

Before communicating with slice on any social media platform, make sure the account is an official account that goes by the username sliceit_ 

Different ways fraudsters can reach out to you. 

The serial caller – This is the fastest way for scammers to obtain your personal information. They may call as customer service executives from slice asking for details. Once they have the details, you can wish your money goodbye. 

The creepy texter– Scammers pretend they are verifying transactions via text, before ultimately asking you to share your details. Be the smart nugget that you are and refrain from sharing any such information on texts. 

The one who slides into your DMs– On social media channels, these scammers direct message you, claiming they can “increase credit limit” and to do so, they might claim to need your personal details and OTP. 

The smooth scammer- It is relatively harder to identify scammers through emails as they mask themselves as slice representatives. Put your guards up when they ask you to share any personal details via email. Make sure to check that the email address ends in @sliceit.com. If it isn’t, the email isn’t from us. 

Here are a few additional security tips to stay secure
  • Never write any identifying information, especially your PIN, on your debit card
  • Never share your personal information, including your account number, user name, password, birth date, or address with strangers or on un-secured websites

If you think you’ve been a victim of a scam, you should contact both slice and the police right away.
