Vishing: Verbal Phishing Warning
Do not trust that phone call!
"Vishing" is derived from the familiar "phishing." The "v" comes from "verbal", because it uses voice phone calls.
Calls claiming to be from a specific financial institution are being made to cell phones. The person calling explains that there is a problem with your account and then requests your card number, expiration, and PIN. The caller ID that you see is a legitimate number that the identity thieves hijacked to make the call.
Legitimate calls from financial institutions (Credit Unions, credit card companies, etc.) will NOT ask you for information they already have. Do not give this information.
Minimum safety precautions you should take.
