TO THE MOON AND BACK


[link to this post]
 
Received a phone call yesterday and today the 17th July.
FROM VISA SECURITY, a female informed me that a £600.00 transaction was about to be transacted on my Visa account and to PRESS ONE.
So we can go THERE but not STOP this type of call.

Maybe another way to look at it might be ...

Some were clever enough to help man go to moon and back ...

Some were clever enough to avoid an obvious scam ...

Have had a dozen or more of the back end of this type of scam call on the answer phone over the last few weeks.

How does a "call blocker" stop a new number calling? I thought you had to block a number manually.

If the caller does not announce themselves, it rejects the call.

I'm interested in how that works, Zarjaz - sounds clever. Suppose I ring you and when challenged I say 'Visa Security Department'?

What happens then?
