All rights reserved Vishing Vishing is the practice of leveraging Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to trick private personal and financial information from the public for the purpose of financial reward. The term is a combination of "voice" and phishing. Vishing using social engineering techniques.Voice over Internet ProtocolVoIP phishingsocial engineering Vishing exploits the public's trust in landline telephone services, which have traditionally terminated in physical locations which are known to the telephone company, and associated with a bill-payer.

In this Incident criminals setup numbers in the local exchangewar dialer When the phone is answered, an automated recording is played to alert the consumer that their credit card has had fraudulent activity and the consumer should call the following phone number immediately. The phone number could be a toll free number often with a spoofed caller ID for the financial company they are pretending to represent. When the consumer calls the number, it is answered by a typical computer generated voice that tells the consumer they have reached account verification and instructs the consumer to enter their 16-digit credit card number on the key pad. Once the consumer enters their credit card number, the visher has all of the information necessary to place fraudulent charges on the consumer's card. The call can then be used to harvest additional details such as security PIN, expiry date, date of birth, bank account number, etc.
