Phishing in the name of auto insurance

by patrol

The residents in Columbus, Ohio are faced with a phishing scam call that asks them for their personal and bank account details. The scam works like this: the scammer calls you and informs that he is calling from your auto insurance company. He says that there are some problems with your insurance or payment of insurance. You need to confirm your personal details in order to clarify and clear the problem. You are asked for your insurance number, your personal information, SSN and bank account details. A well-crafted phishing scam, the victims never suspect anything till they are scammed.

The best way to face such scams is ask the scammer for his name, phone number and tell him that you will call back. This may threaten the scammer and he may not proceed further.
