    • Always enter your bank account or card details on a secured internet connection only. This way the chances of facing any fraud reduces.

    • Do not hide your medical history while buying or renewing your health insurance policy even if it increases your premium. If you do not disclose any pre-existing illness and your insurance company finds out about it later, your claim will be rejected and your policy may be canceled.
