Show Me The Money!

, , , | Right | October 25, 2017

(I work customer service where we do a number of things including wiring money. As people like to use this to get free cash, we are told to hang up if someone calls claiming to be from the company.)

Me: *answering phone* “Thank you for calling [Store]. How can I help you?”

Scammer: “Yes, this is [Name] from [Company]. I need you to enter a transfer to see if your new security upgrade went through.”

Me: “Oh, you need me to make sure the system is secure by sending someone money when no one is here to give me money to validate the transaction.”

Scammer: “Yes, that is correct.”

Me: “Yeeeaaah, that’s not gonna happen.” *click*

(The sad part is some people actually follow through with these and complete the transaction.)
