The caller is persistent and does not give you time to think or even verify the call. They are actually trying to get your sensitive information like your PIN, card verification value (CVV), One-Time Password (OTP), etc., by saying that they are needed for account-related purposes. They can make it scary by saying that your account could be closed or locked if you don’t provide the information.
If you give your information, the scammer will use it to access your real account and steal your money.
If the caller asks for your financial information with a sense of urgency or threat, refuse to give out your information and just end the call. Never share your bank details and security access information. If you need to verify the caller’s identity, call your bank’s official contact number only.
