This afternoon I received a call - 034572XXXXX - from someone pretending to call from the Halifax Fraud Team and they told me someone was trying to make a payment with my card and needed to check if it was really us making the payment. I told them it wasn't us and they informed that our card was cloned or something and they will send a new card. In addition, They needed to change our sort code and account number. They were really prepared and professional and told us that we had to move out a
Thought the caller sounded odd which made me suspicious.... Pretended to be Halifax asking personal details, Saying there has been a fraudulent transaction on my account for a car purchase in Dublin. Nothing pending on my banking app so again didn't add up. Googled the number and found this page. Caller tried to persuade me not to call Halifax back as I would be waiting 1 hour 20 mins to speak to someone, So it would be easier to deal with him. I have since called Halifax who confirmed this i
I received a call from 0345 720 3041 advising they're from Halifax and 2 payments have been attempted using my account in the last 15mins. The women requested my long card number so my account could be blocked and a new card issued, This is when I got suspicious and said I didn't have the card details available during the call so they advised they would call back. I then received a text from 20220 saying 'Santander have scheduled you a call back at 3:50'. I've confirmed with Halifax this IS
I didn‚Äôt give any genuine pass codes only the card reader stuff, They asked if I knew a payee which I didn‚Äôt then said to confirm the cancel on my card reader. I realised they weren‚Äôt cancelling the payee they were adding them, Luckily I emptied my account at the start of the call so there was no money they could take.
This number called me and stated that my account had been compromised and after asking the standard security questions (full name, DOB and address), They identified a ¬£910 pending transaction for a purchase I did not make. This phone number is ONE digit different from the Halifax customer service number listed on the back of my bank card. I actually checked my account on my mobile banking and this was true and the transaction was visible in my pending section. I even had legitimate text messa
I had a call from someone stating to be Halifax saying I had fraud on my account and a transaction from another city. I didn't get as far to give him details. I asked for my address and date of birth that they knew. Still, I ended the call. I had fraud the other month and Halifax usually send you a message asking if you have made said transaction they don't call you. Dodgy!!!!
Called this evening claiming to be Halifax bank... When asking how they can confirm, They said they would call back on a Halifax number and did from this number. They stated my full name, Address and digits of my card number (scarily!) then when I said I‚Äôd googled the number, They hung up.
Claimed to be HSBC & identified a fraudulent direct debit on my account- wanted to cancel my card and give me a new bank account and sort code.. Got pushy when I said I wanted to check out myself and call the bank.
UNSAFE _ DO NOT USE convinced me they were the bank with confirming my details back to me first... Then told me there was transactions on my account that needed review and that all funds should be transferred to a newly opened account.
I received a call from 0345 720 3041 advising they're from Halifax and 2 payments have been attempted using my account in the last 15mins. The man requested my long card number so my account could be blocked and a new card issued, This is when I got suspicious. They then told me they would create a new account for me which I need to transfer all my money into immediately.
I got a call from 'No caller ID' saying they were the Halifax and that there has been unusual activity on my account. They wanted to upgrade my security and change my accounts. They wanted me to transfer money to a 'new account' whilst on the phone to them. I said I wanted to call Halifax myself to check this so they said they would call back on a Halifax number - being this number. I didn't answer and called Halifax who confirmed it's a scam!!
They were pretending to Lloyd Bank and were trying to get me transfer money to safe account. Very professional and convincing. I was transferred to manager and then other employee. Also they were very polite and didn't push me to hard. Be very careful with those guys, High level scamers!!!
Guy pretending to be Halifax. They even managed to send me alerts just prior to the call saying someone was trying to use my card... This makes you panic and give them details.. I NEARLY did. Also note this number is ONE DIGIT out from the genuine Halifax number
BE VERY AWARE OF A SCAM TV LICENCE EMAIL. They accessed my bank account and transferred money from my savings account to the current account. They then rang me 4 times in one day. 4th call they told me I had an Argos transaction of over 1300 spent from my account. He said he was from Halifax fraud team. I checked my bank account whilst he was talking to me and there was nothing else on if other than the transfer. This is done to make you worry and then they ask for your details. I kept hi
