New Bank Fraud Technique

We are all told to not give out our financial account access information to some stranger over the phone. We are told instead to initiate a call ourselves to our bank in order to ensure that we know to whom we are speaking. This new fraud technique appears to circumvent that advice.

Beware the courier scam: an express way to lose your money – []

When I agreed to hand over my bank cards after some fraudulent activity on my account there was no reason to be suspicious – especially as I was the one making the phonecall

Even if your telephone does not operate in this manner, there is some good common sense learning to be had from this story. While it’s obvious that the mark should not have handed over his bank card to the courier, that alone would probably have not stopped the thieves, but maybe slowed them down while they printed a new card or just used the information they had without a card.
