Overview of the Scam
You get a call on your landline — usually early in the morning — from a person who claims to be working in the security and fraud department of your bank or credit card company. They’ve supposedly flagged your account due to unusual purchase activity overnight and are calling to find out whether your card has been compromised. They then ask if you’ve made a particular purchase; once you reply that you haven’t, they assure you they will credit your account for the amount.
To verify the credit, the caller recites your home address (correctly) and says you can call the 1-800 number on the back of your card later if you have questions. Finally, they ask you to prove that you are in possession of the credit card by asking you to read out the three- or four-digit CVV (Card Verification Value) security number on the back of your card. After you do this, they respond that you are correct, thank you and hang up.
Unfortunately, the caller now has all the information required — your name, address, card number and CVV — to commit CNP fraud.
Here are a few other versions of the scam:
Call-back request: The caller may ask you to call the 1-800 number on the back of your card to prove to you the call is legit. When you hang up, however, the call is not immediately disconnected because there is a 5 to 25 second disconnect delay on landline calls in Canada. To really fool you, the caller even plays a recording of a dial tone to make you think you are placing a new call but — make no mistake — the scammers are still on the line. When they “answer” your call, they redirect you to an imposter who may ask you to transfer funds to an external, supposedly “safer”, bank account (that belongs to them) while the “investigation” is taking place.
Transaction-review request: Some victims are duped into providing remote access to their computers and online banking records so the “investigator” can review any suspicious transactions.
Investigation-assistance request: Other victims are asked to “help” catch the criminal by accepting a deposit and transferring on it to another account. The deposit, however, is fake — which means victims end up transferring their own money to the scammers.
Caller: Inconsiderate telemarketer
I dont know how they got my phone number. But, at first, they hung up when I answered the phone.
The next time, I received a call, it was a request to confirm a purchase on my credit card.
Wanting to verify, my credit number and accept a charge of $1300.00.
You are kidding right. I wouldnt provide my credit card information and I wouldnt confirm the said purchase.
I hung up and called Master Card to inform them someone is trying to apply an unauthorized amount on my credit card.
The nerve of some people.
Caller: No answer

Caller: (416) 313-4982
I get this call almost every day. It has been ongoing for almost two months. First, they call my cell # (usually between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm EST) and then again on my home phone # (usually between 4:30 and 8:30). I don't answer calls that I don't recognize and am certain this is a spoofed # to make it look like it is local. The caller NEVER leaves a message. Call it what you want it is most likely a spam/phishing, scam, nuisance call.
I didnt even know who she is and what she was trying to tell me. I was a victim of a fraud so i hung up quick. They called me on behalf of AMEX and offered me sth I dont really understand. They said the same information was available on AMEX website but I dint find a s**t. crazy....they have called once every couple of days, no message.....losers Quote: " ...to buy loss of LIFE INSURANCE for your MORTAGES."
%$#*! Absolute phishing! Do these "professionals" even know what the HECK they are saying?
Stop the insanity! Tired of seeing this number # on my cell phone message listing. I don't and never will answer calls that I don't know (and even some that I do know). In my case I have a Canadian Tire credit card and the call was to try and sell me more life insurance that would then be billed monthly to my card.
