I’ve noticed that the number of vishing attempts reported at work has been on the rise. Vishing like phishing is a socially engineered attempt to get your financial information. Unlike phishing rather than luring you to a website, it lures you to a phone number. This could fool some people who are aware of the danger of phishing websites but unaware that of the ease of setting up a number to collect financial info. When calling your financial institutions only trust the number on the back of your card and the number on the bill.
Here is the text of the vish:
In our terms and contidions you have agreed to state that your account must always be under your control or those you designate at all times.
