PhishingMarch 6th, 2006 at 11:58 am by Preston Taylor Holmes
Just a short while ago, I got a call (on my cellphone) from some broad who started by telling me what a great Visa customer I’ve been and listed the things I was going to receive as appreciation (Wal Mart gift certificates, among other things).
She then started trying to verify information, repeating the last 4 digits of my primary debit card and then my street address.
It was at that point I requested her name and number. She said she would provide that, but asked why I needed it. So I repeated my request. She quickly hung up.
The caller ID said 727-541-0001, which is a Verizon number out of Florida.
This was obviously an attempt to phish for info – has anyone had this happen recently? Should I bother informing my bank?
I’d like to put my size 10.5 boot up her ass, but she hung up too quickly.
