Phishing Scam Impersonation Scam
Received a call stating they are from Lazada and that i had some unauthorized purchases that they blocked because they suspect a scam. they said that to cancel those transactions they will send me a cancellation code that i have to verify by reading the code out to them. The SMS received from Lazada was actually an otp code to reset password. luckily on the message it says "Do not share this with anyone, not even Lazada" and hence i suspect a scam. The person on the phone insisted it was a cancellation code, not an otp. I hung up the call. maybe can share the story or phone number with others so they know of such scams.
