That call claiming to be from your bank about an unauthorized charge on your account could really be from a scammer, Doug Magditch of CW33-TV, Dallas - Fort Worth reported.
"He says he’ll fix it. He just need little information. Information like your three-digit security code," said Doug Magditch.
“They already have you off-balance. They have you worried. They have you thinking about that, rather than thinking about I need to protect my information,” said Jeannette Kopko with the Dallas Better Business Bureau.
Be wary when someone starts asking for your information, and end the conversation immediately.
The call could be from a scammer who has your credit card number and name, and just needs the security code. "If you give it to him, he’ll have everything he needs to go on a spending spree," Doug Magditch said.
"Before you know it, you’ve got a problem straightening it out,” said Kopko.
You might want to consider getting a new credit card number.
If you a get a call claiming to be from your bank and it just doesn't seem right, hang up and call your bank directly using a phone number from your account records.
