SHAZAM has seen an increase in vishing fraud reports since 12:00 p.m. CT yesterday, February 1, 2011. Multiple reports have been from cardholders receiving automated and live telephone calls demanding account information. In at least one case, a message was left on a cardholder’s telephone, asking the cardholder to call back a toll-free telephone number to enter account information.

Unlike previous vishing attacks that follow a single source point or method of operation, these reports have varied widely. Some calls have referenced “Visa® debit” or MasterCard® debit”; some have referenced “your SHAZAM debit card”; and others have made no reference to an organization. Again, some have included recorded messages while others have had a live operator or callback option. One trend SHAZAM has noticed is some calls listing a “spoofed” caller identification number of 1402.

These calls are fraudulent and are not authorized by Shazam or Neighborhood National Bank.  If you have any questions please call us at 320-763-8366.
