It's amazing how easy you can to become a victim. About 7 years ago, I was ending my workday and got a phone call from my bank. The caller asked me to enter my card number, and without thinking I pulled out my wallet and started typing in the numbers. Then I realized it was a scam. I hung up, called my bank, and a new card was on the way to me immediately. It was a simple mistake while busy at work. It can happen to anyone.
