No RBI Registration

– Check for RBI registration on the app or RBI website. – Ensure the lending app is registered as an NBFC.


Missing Contact Information

– Genuine apps provide valid contact details for customer support. – Be cautious if contact information is absent or appears fake.


Unfavorable Loan Terms

– Be wary of apps offering loans with exorbitant interest rates. – Legitimate lenders adhere to RBI-regulated interest rates.


Suspicious Data Requests

– Be cautious if the app requests unnecessary data access. Legitimate apps only need basic information for loan processing. – Never pay processing fees before loan approval; legitimate lenders deduct charges from the loan amount.


Additional Tips

– Read user reviews for insights into legitimacy and user experience. – Stay informed about reported scams in news or by financial institutions. – Choose established and reputable lenders; if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
