got a call from 225-906-5434

told me my co-op visa card was suspended and to hit 1 to reactivate.

of course I googled co-op visa also:

looks like the phone system was hacked and is being used by nigerian scammers.

Here is how it works:

The scammers look for a security flaw in VOIP systems.

They hijack the system and start making free calls, its easy.

They use an automated attendant to establish a menu for you to respond to.

You hit a button to reactivate your account, it goes to another automated attendant and they record your information.

Very easy to do with a weak VOIP system.

Anyone who is stupid enough to do anything with a credit card over the phone when they call YOU deserves to get fucked
