FBI warns of new phone scam that targets your bank account
The FBI warns consumers and small and medium sized businesses to be on the alert for scammers who tie up phone lines while emptying their bank accounts.
The “telephone denial-of-service” calls, which can include dead air, advertisements or phone sex menus, are actually diversionary tactics designed to tie up a victim’s phone lines. While the lines are busy, the fraudsters impersonate the victims and raid their bank accounts, online trading and other money management accounts.
