Fraud Awareness campaign launched by PhonePe
PhonePe has come up with an awareness building campaign on making digital payments safe. The campaign is launched on the occasion of Dussehra which represents the victory of good over evil. The 10 faces of Ravana has been creatively used to portray the 10 new faces of evil, payment frauds, to aware the users. The video format of the campaign is intended for distribution on social media. With reference to the familiar legends and stories, the campaign has 10, 15 sec animated videos which will educate the customers about the various ways in which swindlers can swindle them and other ways to keep their money safe.
Digital payment categories can continue growing at its own pace only if the customers will be educated about the simple measures by which they can safeguard themselves and feel safe. In this fight against payment fraud, PhonePe aims to partner with the users.
Speaking about the campaign, Anuj Bhansali, Head of Risk and Fraud Prevention, PhonePe said “To enable our vision of making digital payments safe, easy and ubiquitous for all Indians, it’s crucial to educate our customers about the different faces of fraud. Instead of being afraid of the possibility of coming across a fraudster, we want people to be aware of such frauds and empower them to tackle it cautiously. With this campaign on the occasion of Dussehra, we aim to be an effective partner to our users in this fight against this new age evil and help them make most of the digital payments ecosystem for all that it has to offer without fear holding them back.”
