Called me from several different mobile numbers claiming to be from visa and mastercard security department and said there was a suspicious transaction made on my account. Was very rude when I questioned them and gave me (02) 8006 5260 to call. Haven’t bothered since reading these comments I just got a call from an Indian man in a very busy call centre who said he wanted to verify if I had made a donation of $1200 to someone in America using my visacard. I told him I hadn't. He started giving me instructions about how to download an app on my phone so he can get access and make sure the transaction is cancelled. I stupidly let him do it and half way through changed my mind and said I was going to ring the bank to confirm his details. He gave me this number which i googled. How stupid am I!! I am an ex bank staff member and he had me convinced. Caller: Martin Smith
Told me my visa card had been used for ebay $300 and western union $600. When I told him I had to confirm this by speaking to other family members he told me to call back on (02) 8006 2560 and he was calling from (02) 7251 9500. He had an Indian accent and was calling from a very noisy office. I will be calling my bank but not him
