Scammers’ modus operandi

Scammers may call posing as an employee of your bank. The fake bank employee will then say that there is a problem with your current account. It may have been hacked, for example, or they have spotted suspicious transactions. This is not true. It is just a way for the scammer to convince you to take measures quickly. Scammers can be very convincing, because they seem to know a lot about you. The information they have on you was often obtained through data breaches or a phishing scam. If you don’t trust it, don’t give out your details, don’t transfer any money, and report the suspicious call to us.
