New method to try to defraud Santander and BBVA customers

Published

on

A few days ago we presented the case of scams committed by sending SMS to clients of Santander and BBVA banks.

In that article, we offered some tips for people to avoid being victims of this modus operandi committed by cybercriminals and thus keep their third-party bank details safe.

However, it seems that this is not the only strategy that has been used to defraud the clients of these banks. Recently the computer expert JJ Merelo, a Santander bank client, reported through his Twitter account an experience in which they tried to trick you into obtaining your bank details for the purpose of scamming you.

In the Twitter thread Merelo described the situation as a “attempted fraud with a considerable level of sophistication». The steps involved in the event were as follows:

  • An incoming call apparently made from the Santander bank telephone number.
  • The person making the call indicates that they already know your ID and phone numbers.
  • Following this they tell you that a fraudulent payment using your card details.
  • Once the situation is exposed, the person making the call offers to “solve” the problem by sending a message with a code that the client must then provide.

It is in the latter that the essence of fraud lies. At that moment Merelo points out that this request generated mistrust and expressed it to the person who made the call, causing the caller to hang up and the fraud attempt to be interrupted.

Something that must be taken into account in situations related to Santander and BBVA banks is that under any concept they will call their customers to ask for codes sent by SMS.

That is why if you are a client of one of these banks or any other and they make a call of this type to you, simply hang up and contact the customer service number provided by the bank.

In this way you will be able to check if there was indeed any unauthorized activity in your account and if someone who works there contacted you requesting a code.

However, it is likely that some users have been convinced to collaborate in this fraud that at first glance seems legitimate, taking into account that the caller claims to have your personal data.

Direct competitor to the iPhone 14 Pro Max at the

Smartphones Pixel 7 and Pixel 6 stand out quite modest compared to many competitors prices. In addition, during the year, while a particular line is relevant, devices are sometimes sold at huge discounts. For example, now in the US, Google’s current flagships are being sold at record low prices.

Direct competitor to the iPhone 14 Pro Max at the price of the iPhone 13 mini.  Pixel smartphones are selling at record discounts

For example, BestBuy is selling an unlocked Pixel 7 for just $350! Recall that the device started at a price of 600 dollars, that is, there is a discount of more than 40%! The Pixel 7 Pro is also on sale for $600 or 33% off. That is, the Pixel 7 Pro is sold at the price of the Pixel 7.

Google itself is also now offering good discounts, but still not as impressive as in the case of BestBuy. For the Pixel 7, the company is asking $450, while the Pixel 7 Pro is $750. It’s also worth mentioning that the Pixel 6a is currently only $300 and BestBuy is giving away $250!

A comparison with Apple prices will not be superfluous. It turns out that the Pixel 7 Pro can now be bought for the price of the iPhone 13 mini, and the Pixel 7 costs much less than the iPhone SE. The price of the Pixel 6a is out of the question.
