The Lives We Touched Series #2
If you’re relatively tech-savvy, you might think you have a good level of protection against financial scams and other malicious activity. However, phone scammers can have a different method for everyone. The reality is that we’re all just one call away from scammers and unwanted callers. And some of them are so convincing in their spiel, that even the wariest of mobile phone users can fall prey to a scam.
Imagine this scenario: a person calls you claiming to be from your bank, and they want to give you a better interest rate on your credit card. They confirm your personal details, but just need you to confirm the last few digits of your card number to apply the deal to your account. This kind of call can seem genuine, especially if you’ve been looking out for a new credit card offer to help you keep your repayments low.
If a scammer comes along at the right time and says the right thing, it’s all too easy to become a victim of fraud. Thankfully, you can now use technology as a security shield for your phone and eliminate your chances of getting scam phone calls and texts in the future. Introducing Getcontact – a call identification and spam protection app. Click here to find out how Getcontact protects you from phone scammers.
