i am a member of the mortgage forum. sam helped me a lot to find out some mortgage related technical probs. i am from india. dunno if u guys can help me or not, still asking.

i read this forum often (thank god i did). just few days back i got a call and the person pretended to be from my credit card co. he had a good voice. he told me a wrong 16 digit no. and asked if it was mine. i said no. then he told "its not urs? then whats ur credt card no.?" as i was on my way to home, i requested him to call later. but then suddenly it came in my mind. why should i disclose my secret 16 dig no. to a third person? credit card scams are increasing in india...its time to beware.

thanks to this community, i have learned a lot about protecting privacy.


Definately do not give out personal information. You are right there are scams increasing everywhere.

Good thing you were able to think about that immediately. Thieves are becoming more rampant these days that they will do anything that they can think of just to get a hold of other people’s information. This is one good experience that should be shared to everyone. You will never know when you are already talking to a thief or whether you are already opening an email which contains malicious codes. Everyone should make a conscious effort to protect themselves from identity theft so that thieves would be left with no one to victimize.
