What is Vishing?

The term Vishing comes from combining ‘voice’ with ‘phishing’. This method of social engineering involves the fraudster telephoning you and claiming to be from the Bank, Police, or other reputable organisation, in an attempt to obtain your personal information and steal your money.

There are a number of scams which fraudsters will use to try and obtain your details from a cold call. Say no to requests for information and don't be afraid to end the call.

For further information, please see our common fraud threats page.
