I received a call early one Saturday morning from my bank, warning me of a possible fraud on my debit card. Being the smart cookie I am, I told the
woman I would not be providing her with any information regarding my account! If she found a fraud on the account, she should be telling ME what my
social security number is! She says that's fine, when you hang up dial the 1-800 number on the back of your bank card and you may discuss the issue
with our fraud department via that number.
When I hung up, I researched the 1-866 number that she had called me from. Turns out a lot of people were getting calls like this from the number.
About 50/50 reports on whether or not it was legit. Sketchy. When I called my bank directly they walked me through the odd transactions and got my
card service restored. I am glad the called me at 8 a.m. On a Saturday to let me know, before I went out to use my card and was embarrassed. I would
still do the same if it happened again!
