Scam Warning – Phone Calls Re: Fraudulent Bank Charges
Every now and then we like to pass along a warning about a scam we’ve run across recently – especially those that are particularly convincing or easy to fall for. And yesterday I personally experienced a good one.
It came in the form of a cell phone call, in which an automated voice said it was from Bank of America, warning me that a recent charge to my account had been declined as potentially fraudulent, and that the account was now frozen due to the suspicious activity. Then it asked me to call a toll-free number for further information.
