Revolut

Popular e-banking service Revolut has issued a warning to customers to “stay vigilant against scam calls.”

The company warned its customers in Malta that criminals are targeting victims pretending to be from Revolut, banks, tax authorities, and even Amazon.

These scams often involve fraudsters telling victims to move money into a new account due to a fraud or security issue, and Revolut warns that they usually make it sound urgent to apply additional pressure.

They can also change their phone numbers to make it look like their target is getting a call from a genuine company, so “you need to stay vigilant,” according to Revolut.

The service warns:

  • Revolut will never contact you over the phone without verifying ourselves first by sending you a message via your Revolut app
  • Revolut and other firms will never tell you to move your money into a new account
  • Revolut and other firms will never instruct you to ignore scam payment warnings
  • Revolut will never tell you which buttons to press or ask you to download software so someone else can view your screen

“If any of the above is happening to you, it’s likely that you’re being scammed. We may not be able to recover your money if it leaves your account, so please stop and contact us via the in-app chat before you proceed with making any payments to a new beneficiary that you suspect could be a scammer,” it added.
