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:
“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.
