What are Scam Calls?
Although we live in an increasingly digital world, where more and more of our information is online, there is still a real threat from scammers through phone calls. This is because once they have contact with you, there are able to pose as someone they are not, a member of staff at a bank for example, and try to get bits of information from you that they can use to steal your money or sensitive information.
These types of calls try to persuade, threaten, or trick you into giving out information to them, whether it be passwords or pin numbers. The fact that it is another person talking to you and seems much more legitimate than say an email sender, is what makes these calls so dangerous.
