InfoSec Tip: Call the number on your card

Interesting (in a bad way) hack here. This guy’s wife got a message from an ATM telling her that her card had been compromised, giving her a number to call. Luckily for them, they were alert enough to not give the account number and credit card number!

Tip: Any time you need to contact your credit card issuer, use the number on the card – not one provided by a 3rd party, even if it’s theoretically from the same bank.

Should this happen to you, report it!  And leave a note on the ATM so the next person doesn’t get scammed.
