    It's legitimate. Card security querying an unauthorized overseas transaction.

    Most likely a SCAM.

    Received a missed call from this number claiming to be from Citibank regarding a security concern. I tried calling back (which wasn't a smart move) and number was engaged. I then called the actual Citibank number on the back of my card and spoke with customer service who checked my account and said there was no record of me having been contacted earlier by Citibank. He also said security alerts are generally sent by SMS and to never give out personal info to anyone claiming to be Citibank over the phone (common sense but sometimes we get caught up and forget).

    I have a feeling the comments on here claiming that this number is legitimate is left by the scammers themselves.

    Said they were from Citibank Credit card and needed the 3 digit number on back of card. I was busy and said I'd call back to tell them to stop scamming but "number not connected".

    I received a call from this number on both my mobile and landline and a text message on my mobile. I didn't answer either but called Citibank on their public number to enquire. It is a legitimate Citbank number (credit dad fraud section). They called to report three fraudulent transactions on my credit card but I had already seen them and reported them to Citibank who had already tagged them as suspicious. Well done Citibank but it's just sad that we are all so suspicious of any phone calls now.

    I got a call from this number. I had applied for a Qantas credit card which Citibank is the issuer of. The caller knew the details I had posted on my application and didn't ask for any personal information. She just wanted to follow up on some information I had provided and I got a text from Qantas 5 minutes afterwards advising my credit card application was successful.

    claimed they were from the Bank of QLD. I spent ages trying to connect but no answer. I spent hours checking my accounts and yet all is in order. I am very nervous about their suspect behaviour.

    Left a voicemail saying they were from Diners card security and called in regards to some suspicious activity on my account. I never had a Diners card in the first place.

    Caller: Scam

    Received a call on my mobile, and then immediately after on my work landline saying my credit card had a fraudulent transaction. I called back on 1300 550 216. I spoke to a person with a muffled but otherwise clear voice, and call centre background noise. He asked for my credit card details so he could clarify the nature of the fraud. I refused to give any information. I called my bank and they verified that the calls WERE NOT FROM THEM. This is a scam call.

    Legitimate Call. They are a section of CitiBank that deal with the processing of applications for Qantas Money Credit Cards and other flavours that are backed by CitiBank.

    Legitimate. Called Citibank directly & they said Citibank security had called me due to the security of my credit card had been compromised. They locked the account & sent me a new card

    Caller: Fraud investigations

    These calls are legitimate.

    There is fraud analytics reviewing all transactions for suspicious behaviour, this is called modelling.

    Sometimes a company's data can be compromised causing a breach (think Apple or Netflix and the amount of Credit Card information they would have stored in their database and imagine that got hacked). It is a legal requirement for the company that has had the data leak to advise the relevant authorities or governing bodies within 24hrs of them becoming aware. That info is provided to the Financial Institutions (FI's); ie CBA, NAB, ANZ etc...

    Massive penalties are imposed if they're a data breach's that could have been avoided if these companies followed the security recommendations that are made by the FI's

    Caller: Scam

    Wanted my credit card details. A lot of noise in the back ground, like an Indian call centre. Also said they wanted to come to Australia so they could make a lot of money and be able to bring over all their relatives, including their cousin, who they were going to marry one day.
