I actually got called two days in a row by computer (my answering machine took the calls) using my name and giving the last four digits of my Visa card, telling me to call the security department at xxx-xxx-xxxx because of possible fraudulent activity on my card.

Even though it sounded totally legit, rather than call the number left on the recorder, I was a bit suspicious and called the number on my card. When I told them the story, I was told that there was no security issue with my account, and that the phone number left was not theirs.

The moral is: Beware…. these phishing scams can get pretty elaborate.
