Impersonation Scam

This guy called and claimed to be my sec sch friend. He said he lost his phone during lunch and this is his new number and asked me to update his contact details.

Called me the next day and asked if i know how to update bank on his new number for otp. After that, asked me to lend him money to pay contractor for his house ceiling works cause he only free to head down to bank after getting logged out online. I didn’t lend him any. Called my friend later and verified that it’s not him.
