#371 - Scam targeting Americans over the phone reported by CNN (Watt Thoughts)

If you get call claiming to be bank give no info. Hangup and call bank and ask if they called. This is not an entirely new one, but the way they get you to do a reset of password through the PIN and two factor authentication is new. Never give out password to someone who is calling you (even if Caller ID says it is them) as they can fake lots of ways. Hang up on them and call bank (look up number on a check or statement to call them, not what someone may say). This goes for insurance companies etc. also and also don't fall for similar in email or texts (I had a spam phishing text last week).




This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
