Now that we have stopped replying to those phishy emails from someone potraying to be our banks, well here comes vishing. Its a new form of security threat we need to safeguard ourselves against. This time around its not about clicking on a link its about calling a number.

You get a call telling you that your credit card has been breached and asks you to call the “following number” immediately. The following number in this case is a VOIP phone that can recognize telephone keystrokes. So once you call the number, you will be asked to verify your account information and key your 16 digit account number. And then, well you know whats next, you get a $1500 charge for a day at the spa!
