Normal topicFraudsters are spoofing bank telephone numbers

From Which?:

It’s easy for scammers to spoof legitimate phone numbers using software shared by criminals freely online.

Louise, from Hertfordshire, believed that her bank account was compromised after receiving a text from what appeared to be the Barclays fraud team.

Then, she received a call from a number that matched the Barclays phone number on her debit card and was persuaded to transfer all her funds into a ‘secure account’.

So how can you tell if a call is genuine if you can’t rely on caller ID?

Stay safe,

Which? scam alert team
