Beware of phishing phone calls

Impersonation Scam Phishing Scam

The reason for my report is the evolution of scams. Traditionally, scams involve a +65 caller ID prefix, often tied to scammers from the PRC. However, this time is different.

I received a call from 8304621? (lacking an international ID prefix) with an automated voice claiming a transaction with DBS. It seemed authentic; pressing '1' repeated the message, and '0' connected me to a person on a real DBS hotline, sounding local (definitely not PRC). Suspicion arose when I sought to verify the transaction, leading the other party to abruptly hang up. Please help spread awareness.
