Somebody called me this morning telling me he was doing some registration online and he mistakenly put my number on what he was registering, that my number is similar to his number and that the password of what he was registering was sent to my phone which I actually saw as 6310.
He was now appealing to me to give him the reset code that was sent to my phone so that he could finish his registration. I told him to call me with the number he claimed was similar to mine so that I could verify his claim, he told me he didn’t have credit in that line.
I got online to find out more, only to discover he was actually trying to reset my Mobile Banking App PIN and that he is a fraudster, an account hacker. If I had given him the code which was sent to my phone, he would have used it to reset my bank mobile app account.
Please let us be careful and vigilant. Fraudsters are devising new ways every day. This is a new way of defrauding people…
