Vishing (Telephone or Voice Fraud)

 

Vishing is when an individual calls you claiming to be from the Bank, or a company providing a service and request financial and/or personal and security information.

  • The term is a combination of ‘voice’ and phishing. It is typically used to steal credit card numbers or other information used in identity theft schemes from individuals.

The phone number displayed on your handset may appear to be a genuine Bank phone number but these can be mimicked by criminals.

If you suspect any fraudulent activity from any call you receive, you should ask the caller to confirm their authenticity and if still in doubt of the caller’s authenticity, end the call . If you feel your bank details have been compromised, call the number on the back of your credit or debit card or alternatively call the official number for the branch on the AIB website
