    A Bank is providing credit card services to its customers. A person lost his credit card and he received an Email/SMS of credit card transaction from bank.

    In case of card identity theft/loss or a fraudulent offline or online transaction, report the loss immediately to the bank or card provider and have the card blocked. For this, make sure that you have the customer care number of your bank handy. Follow it up with a letter or e-mail. It is also advisable to lodge an FIR at the earliest.

    If the bank does not respond within a week, approach the nodal officer. If there is no response from the bank within 30 days, contact the banking ombudsman appointed by the SBP. If this measure too fails, approach the court of law for redressal.

    ABC Organization is providing free email services to end users but some unknown person is using it for spamming.

    1. Train your spam filter
      When you get a spam email from an unknown sender, don’t just delete it. Select it, and mark it as a spam message. Sometimes, your email client may mark an important email from a known sender as spam. In such scenarios, you need to mark that email as safe to train the email client about your false positives.

    2. Never respond to spam
      In case you received a spam email and recognized it before you open it, don’t open it. If you realize an email as spam only after opening it, mark it as spam and close it. Do not click the links or buttons, or download files from the spam messages.

    3. Use alternative email addresses
      A lot of unwanted emails can make their way into your inbox if you order a product or subscribe to a mailing list. By ordering a product or subscribing to a mailing list of a company, you are automatically signed up to receive unwanted marketing updates from that company, or it may share your contact information with a third-party advertiser.
      One simple solution to stop such spam emails is to create a secondary email address that you can use for such activities. By doing so, those unwanted marketing emails will not appear in your primary email inbox.

    4. Hide your email address
      The more people who expose your email address, the more spam emails you are going to get. So keep your email address hidden from public view. Avoid publishing your primary email address on the web unless it is required. Use alternative email addresses for such scenarios.

    5. Use a third-party Anti-spam filter
      Most of the Anti-spam solutions that are available today can be customized as per your needs, allowing only the approved emails into your inbox. There are free anti-spam software as well as paid anti-spam software.
