A Facebook user, Marcel Ezenwa, took to the platform to expose the new method fraudsters have devised to steal money from people’s bank accounts and how he almost fell a victim.
Read what he wrote below;
“Desperate money mongers!!
Somebody called me with this phone number 07060714545 telling me he was doing some registration online and he mistakenly put my number on what he was registering, that my number is similar to his number and that the password of what he was registering was sent to my phone which I actualy saw as 6310.
He was now appealing to me to give him the reset code that was sent to my phone so that he could finish his registration. I told him to call me with thenumber he claimed was similar to mine so that I could verify his claim, he told me he didn’t have credit in that line.
I got online to find out more, only to discover he was actually trying to reset my bank online/yahoomail password and that he is a fraudster, an account hacker and also a 419er. If I had given him the code which was sent to my phone, he would have used it to reset my bank online/mobile app account.
Please let us be careful and vigilant. Fraudsters are devising new ways every day.
This is a new way of defrauding people…
