Social Security Administration’s Fraud Hotline:
“There has been an increase in attempts by unknown fraudsters to break the card verification value / card verification code (CVV / CVC) on compromised cards, and thereby to commit card fraud, including ATM fraud. This attempt to commit fraud is commonly known as a ‘brute force attack’.
To execute these crimes, email is often used to transport phishing scams and malicious software (malware) to obtain personal information including personal identification numbers (PINs) and to take over legitimate merchant accounts to test the compromised cards.
You can help to reduce the likelihood of this type of fraudulent activity succeeding by being alert for email that (1) contains unfamiliar or suspicious links or attachments, (2) is unsolicited and/or from an unknown sender, (3) is sent multiple times from different senders, or (4) contains poor grammar or incorrectly spelled words. If you receive an email that contains any of these elements or any combination of these elements, you should delete it immediately. Do not open it, click on the links or open any attachment. You should not attempt to reply to the email or forward it to anyone.”
Fraud and Scams
Phishing is a type of Social Engineering used by identity thieves who send emails as bait to trick individuals into giving personal information such as bank account information, or social security numbers. These emails typically claim to be from a legitimate institution. These emails usually contain links to “spoofed” websites, disguised as the legitimate institution’s website with the sole purpose of tricking you into divulging your personal and/or financial information so the thieves can commit fraud or identity theft.
Vishing and smishing are phone scams similar to “phishing”. Vishing is a telephone call claiming to be from a legitimate company requesting your personal information to resolve an urgent financial matter. Unfortunately the telephone call is phony and you are providing information to a fraudster. Smishing is accomplished through text messages on a cell phone by asking you to call a particular number or click on a link that contains malicious code that could potentially steal information stored in your cell phone without your knowledge.
Here are a few ways to protect yourself against smishing or vishing:
· Be wary of incoming calls. If you receive an incoming call and a person or automated system requests personal information, hang up. Caller ID creates a false sense of security, so don’t trust it. Before you give out any information to someone claiming to be from your bank or a company you do business with, call that company directly to verify there is a need for that information. Locate the phone number through the company’s website or on your bank card, not by Googling.
· Don’t call a number left in a voicemail or text message. Remember your bank is not going to send you a text message prompting you to call them. Before calling a number in a text message or voicemail, verify the number using the strategies above.
· Download apps only through official channels. Go to the iTunes or Google Play store to download your bank’s official app. “Phishers” will send you a text message with a link to an app on a third-party server. It’s not as easy to install it, but once you do that, it’s completely seamless. They can make it look completely like the bank’s app.
· Don’t click links from unverified senders. Shortened links on a mobile device can be hard to verify and may link to malicious content. Without being able to see a full address, it’s difficult to tell if the website or sender is legitimate. You also can’t hover over a link like you can from your computer and get a preview of a linked word or graphic.
· Report suspected spam. Document as much information as you can, including what was said, the phone number of the caller and the information the person or system requested so you can report it to your bank as soon as possible. With most major U.S. carriers, you can forward suspicious text messages to 7726 (spam spelled out on your keypad), a spam-reporting system operated by an association of mobile operators.
