Re: Hanging's too good for them

Received a call informing me of fraud on my debit card (legitimate call), but inexplicably the bank then request that I answer some security questions. They couldn't understand why I refused to do it and insisted that *they* answer security questions, given they were the one who phoned me.

When in doubt, hang up and call the company using a phone number that you trust (though preferably not from the same landline - given scammers are able to keep the line active and play a dial-tone down the phone to make you think you're initiating a call)
