Beware of phishing phone calls claiming to be from your 'bank'
Anonymous | 04 Nov 2022
Have received a call, claimed to be from a bank that they needed to verify on a $48XX transaction on the card number ending xx11.
i press 1 for details. FEELING A LITTLE SUSPICIOUS AS IT WAS FROM A +65 NUMBER and requesting for id number, I ask the caller to make a call back using the direct bank number to confirm. Then i hang up the call.
Made a phone call to the bank (Note: Find the official number from the bank's website or app) and found that there was no such transaction and it was all a scam. I felt more relief after checking more details.
I hope to share this encounter and spread the awareness of new scam tactics.
