Robophishing Call “Your Debit Card Is Locked”

image

On the way home tonight, I got a robot call on my cell. The caller id was 73638699 and it was an automated voice telling me it was my debit card was locked. It was quite odd.

The robot voice asked for a confirmation by pressing 1 then it asked for my ATM card number.

I hung-up. It was bogus.

I called my bank directly and confirmed it. Everything was fine, but I was really surprised about the level of this phishing attack.

Be careful out there.
