Hang up when the bank fraud dept calls you


WOW. Moral: tell them you’ll call back and then use the number on the back of your bank card. Don’t just start chatting with the bank when they call you.

–> Needed the pin to send money, failed at that step.
–> Everything before the “what is your pin” seemed totally legitimate. English was perfect. The bank verification code, sent by the expected number, tricked me.
–> The asking for my pin over the phone… not so much.
