The national cyber security agency has alerted donors against fake ‘UPI IDs’ for a special fund launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. In an advisory issued on Saturday, the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) said it has “tracked several fake UPI IDs which are similar to the UPI ID used by the “Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) Fund”.

CERT-In is the country’s nodal agency to guard cyber space. The advisory identified some of the fake UPI IDs in circulation such as  pmcares@pnb, pmcares@hdfcbank, pmcare@yesbank, pmcare@ybl, pmcare@upi, pmcare@sbi and pmcares@icici.
