never disclose card number(credit/debit) to any one asking for it on phone or by mail. call is not from bank . especially last four digits of card. These four digits give a clue to customer identity especially to a/c, because part of the debit card number is branch code. correct me if iam wrong

bro i guess you just escaped an attempt of "social engineering" You were smart enough not to give your details. Thanks for sharing this with us , I guess we should pass such info to the better halfs and friends as they might provide such info without knowing that it is a scam.

Out-bound calls & In-coming calls dont have to be, and will not be from the same numbers.

Default A funny call

My uncle recently narrated this experience with a call he received:

Lady calling in: "Sir, you have been specially chosen to receive a personal loan for Rs.X, would you be interested?
My Uncle:" yes, yes, but please tell me your name"
Lady: "Sir, this is Usha (random name) here"
Uncle: "Usha, are you a Hindu?"
Lady: <confused but decides to proceed>"Yes sir"
Uncle: "In that case you must believe in rebirth right?"
Lady: <Totally confused now but does not know what to do> "ummm yes sir"
Uncle: "In that case, please lend me the money and I will pay it back in my next birth !"
Lady: <At this point you expect her to hang-up, but no!> "Sir, I will have to talk to my supervisor about this"


Don't know how true this is, but knowing my uncle its highly likely. In any case I thought it to be damn funny and nowadays wait to receive a similar call
