Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:

These scam emails pretending to be from the office of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) also have well documented files and attachments with professional statements to trick the email recipients. The email comes as a payment notification of unclaimed funds and money that the user has in RBI, and requests for his personal and bank details to receive the money. Further, the scammers ask the email users to deposit big amounts up to 15,000 INR for crediting the unclaimed money to the user's bank account on the same day. To make their offer believable, the email scammers create a realistic social scenario and also use the name of RBI Governer, D Subbarao.

We request people not to fall for any such fraudulent emails, and avoid any such suspicious email activities.

Update: 24 Jun 2013

Similar emails claiming to come from Foreign Exchange Commission, Mumbai, India, lure the email users with false claims that they have received a foreign demand draft on their name, and that they need to open an account with them, and later send good amount of money in the name of fee to claim their money.

Scammers use various names to mislead people and rob them of money. We request people to be careful with such emails and never to click any links or communicate with them. Any private information you enter in their scam websites can be easily saved and put to unfair use.
