I called my bank for some assistance with their new website, I was trying to move some money from one account into another. The lady who answered the phone asked me if I had my bank card. I was puzzled, as I wasn’t moving money out of that account. She said she would transfer me to her supervisor and I would have to give him my card number and PIN. Great big jangling alarm bells!!!! As she tried to transfer me, she cut me off.
I called the bank’s Fraud line, they confirmed it was odd to say the least and that they would investigate.
One of two things, either the lady is running a scam inside the bank, or the IT department have published a number that connects to scamsters outside the building.
So be careful out there, never give anyone your PIN, not even your bank. Criminals work for banks too.
