That is an older scam….they must have dredged it up again.

The first thing that you must always do if you get any calls from any institution claiming to be your bank, credit cards, merchant account or whatever is to ask them for a call back number (most scammers will hang up on you then) – and tell them you are going to verify the number. If they give you a number – Compare that to your bank statement and see if it is the same. If not it is probably a scam. If it matches you can then call your real company – if the call back number doesn’t match (if they give you one) still call your real company and report. Your card company will never ask for the back number, passwords, or any personal information…they already have it. This advice was given by the card company, so they should be ready for you to ask for a call back number and contact info.
