Vishing is an adaptation of phishing attacks that uses telephone or VoIP (Voice over IP tools). You may receive an email or SMS asking you to call a free phone number to confirm your details, or you may receive a phone call with a recorded message asking you to input your account details. Once you have done this, the attacker is free to use your personal information to attack your account.
To protect yourself use only the published official call centre numbers for your financial services company and be cautious in giving out your personal information over the telephone.
