Dial “F” for fraud

Once again, the police and sev­eral reporting offices are warning of increased tele­phone fraud­ster activities.

The National Cyber Secu­rity Centre (NCSC) received numerous reports on calls, allegedly from the police. Callers for instance claim that there were irreg­u­lar­i­ties with people’s SwissID and bank account. How­ever, those callers only wanted to exploit their vic­tims. Dif­ferent police corps and finan­cial insti­tu­tion were also warning of an increase in tele­phone fraud num­bers last week.

Never dis­close con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion such as e-banking access data or credit card infor­ma­tion via the tele­phone and hang up imme­di­ately if a caller tries to pres­surise you or elicit sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion from you.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on safe behav­iour during tele­phone calls can be found in our article on “Fraud­u­lent sup­port calls“.
