Showing that even big names and important organizations can fall victim to tricksters, there's proof that scammers are using the Supreme Court's name to wrongly get people's private info. The people who run the Supreme Court have put out a warning to tell everyone about this tricky behavior.

The administrative body has brought to light a phishing assault in which a fraudulent website has been established, masquerading as the official Supreme Court website. This counterfeit website is accessible through the URLs http://cbins/scigv.com and https://cbins.scigv.com/offence. The second URL, labeled 'Offence of Money-Laundering,' is being utilized to illicitly acquire people's personal details, including their online banking credentials, credit card, and debit card specifics. The deceptive website, having the appearance of an official platform, explains the alleged offense and provides fields for users to complete, including bank name, phone number, PAN (Permanent Account Number), 'online banking user ID,' 'log-in password,' and 'card password.'

The warning is really serious about not giving any personal or secret info if you go to those website links. If you do, it makes it easier for the bad guys to take your info. The warning also says that the Supreme Court's office will never ask for your private, money-related, or secret details.

The administrative body has informed that the Supreme Court of India has notified law enforcement agencies about the phishing attack to enable an investigation and the pursuit of legal action against those responsible.

The advisory underscores that the official domain of the Supreme Court of India is www.sci.gov.in and advises individuals to verify URLs prior to clicking on them.
