It’s a high-tech spin on an old-fashioned scamming scheme, yet social engineering is a powerful technique that can be used to trick you into cooperating with scam artists and identity thieves. These fraudsters can use various scare tactics to trick you into providing your financial institution’s login credentials and card data or paying for unnecessary technical support services or other items.
This can be done through a phone call, where a scam artist pretends to represent a credit union, a fraud department, a software company like Microsoft, or a popular anti-virus company.

When you engage with these fraudsters, they will offer fake solutions and ask for payment in the form of a one-time fee, subscription service, or gift card.
