Who’s on the line, please?
If you obtained the proper reflex to check the identity of your caller, it’s great. If you never give your personal codes to someone, it’s even better. Apparently fraudsters are operating these days not only via text messages, social media WhatsApp and email, they also have (re)discovered the phone.
Their scenarios are simple but effective, They pretend to be your banker and come up with a credible story. Going from a safety problem to a technical one, they lure you into “safeguarding” your money. They only thing you need to do is cooperate and that’s when they got you.
Do not become one of their victims and abide by this simple rule:
- NEVER GIVE YOUR CODES
- NOT BY PHONE
- NOT VIA EMAIL
- NOT VIA A TEXT MESSAGE
