What is Vishing?
According to Landbank, vishing (Voice or VoIP phishing) is the latest modus operandi of fraudsters that trick you into revealing critical financial information over the telephone.
To elaborate further vishing is the fraudulent practice of making phone calls or leaving voice messages purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as bank details and credit card numbers.
To avoid becoming a victim of vishing, secure your bank account with these friendly reminders.

- Card number
- Card Expiry date
- Credit Verification Value (CVV) at the back of your card
