On Wednesday, December 1st, a local resident realized her elderly mother was involved with a potential telephone scam that occurred over two days. The unknown caller purported that she was an employee from the Royal Bank and her Visa account was comprised for $5000.00. The caller told the victim not to go to the bank as it was an “inside job”. The caller became angry at the victim and was yelling at her when the victim was not following the caller’s orders. The elderly person did not transfer any funds.
Banks will not use high pressured tactics over the phone, and they will not ask you to reveal personal information including your PIN, or passwords for online accounts. If you receive a phone call from your bank, claiming your account has been comprised, hang up and call back. Find your banks phone number online or on a statement to insure you’re calling the bank and not the scammer. Never give personal information to unsolicited callers.
