Nowadays many banking frauds are happening through fake mobile numbers. If you act lax, it is possible that cyber thugs can vacate your entire account. In such a situation, if the mobile number you had given at the time of account opening and it is now closed, then the mobile number you are running should be registered with the bank immediately. With this, you will know immediately whatever money is coming or going in your account. Also you will be saved from fraud.
