How to Protect Yourself from Phishing calls?

1

Stay Calm

It’s important to stay calm and composed during the call. Phishing callers often use scare tactics or urgency to manipulate victims, so maintaining a clear mindset is crucial. Typical strategies employed by scammers are:

2

Verify the Caller

Ask the caller for their name, organization, and contact information. Legitimate organizations will typically provide this information. Be skeptical if they refuse to provide any details or if the information seems suspicious.

3

Do Not Share Personal Information

Never provide personal or sensitive information over the phone, such as social security numbers, bank account details, passwords, or any verification codes. Legitimate organizations will not ask you to provide such information over the phone. Always share information to the bank customer support email or to an employee’s official account.

4

Report the incident

Report the phishing call to your local law enforcement agency or the appropriate cybercrime reporting authorities in your country. They may investigate and take necessary actions to address the issue.

Educate Yourself and Warn others
