Lawyer Nearly Falls for Brilliant Credit Card Scam — Here's How to Avoid It

By

The best phishers present themselves as consummate professionals, and their targets usually have no idea that they've been swindled. Before you know it, your account is depleted and you're on the phone with your bank asking what the heck happened. 

Which is almost what happened to Pieter Gunst. Thankfully, he's warning others about the scam so they can avoid falling victim to it.

Our friend, @DigitalLawyer, was minding his own business one day when he received a phone call from someone who appeared to be a representative from his bank, claiming that there was some suspicious activity on his account in Miami, Florida. They asked him if he was attempting to make a purchase there and he said that no, he wasn't.
