"Complete rubbish. Still, today, some banks will ring you up and start the conversation with "I just need to ask you some security questions before we start..." "

And I say that to ensure security I need a reference number from them, then I'll ring back on thier usual number.

I've refused to talk to people who demand security details but without them being able to prove to me who they are.
