The latest threat from phone fraudsters
This type of scam call begins with an automated message from a 'bank', informing the listener to press 1 to stop an unauthorised transaction. According to reports, it is often claimed that this supposed transaction is to the value of £600, demonstrating that scammers try extremely hard to frighten those who answer their calls. Upon pressing 1, the listener is connected to a real person, who may demand bank details and personal information. If this information is divulged to the caller, there is a great risk that money will be stolen.
It is advised to never give out bank details over the phone. Banks themselves never ask for pin numbers or security codes. It is, therefore, suspicious if this information is requested.
