What is Vishing?
Vishing is when criminals attempt to obtain sensitive and personal information, such as user names, passwords and card reader codes over the telephone.
Fraudsters use many techniques to obtain password and security credentials. Often a fraudster will call the victim and pretend to be the bank or a police official and ask for bank account details, card details, three-digit security numbers, PINs, online banking username and passwords or telephone banking security passwords.
