Phone Phishing Scam in the Wild
February 6, 2008 Leave a comment
I posted "Subjunctive Identity Theft .. From American Express?" back in September.
In the post, I detailed a reality where a cardholder would respond to a phone call or voice mail and start talking with someone on the other line whose first question was "what is your account number?"
While my interaction with American Express was legitimate, Netcraft reports the scam is out there in "Fraudster using phone numbers to receive authentication details".
