Phone scam data » Bank


The Bank Account scam has been around a long time. A scammer will give you a call or send you a text message claiming to be from your bank informing you that suspicious activity has taken place on your account.

The caller will try to acquire your personal details including your passwords in order to gain access to your account. This will be done by asking you to provide details including address, email, online banking password, Mother’s maiden name, etc.

After gaining access to your bank account, the scammer will of course empty your account. If you receive an unexpected call from someone claiming to be from your bank, hang up, and call your bank to find out if it was a legitimate call. If you inform the caller this is what you plan to do and they try to pressure you to stay on the line, it’s most likely a scammer that’s on the line.
