The Latest trick devised by hackers to overtake or hijack your phone account
Someone got hacked despite 2step verification. The following depicts how how it happened:
These Hackers have realised that, almost everyone is aware of their antics on account hacking and so had done the 2-step verification.
So they’ve stepped a bit further by doing this:
They will call you after they might have studied your personality and line of interest or after they might have hacked into any group you belong and tell you that, there would be:
webinar/seminar/workshop/conference/zoom meeting, or the likes, on your group.
They will then tell you to watch out for a code or an ID number that will grant you access into such meetings that would either be sent to you as a text message or into your WhatsApp account.
After a few minutes, they will ask if you’ve received it and if you say yes, they will ask you to call the number out or send it back to them.
Pls, be wise not to call or send it back to them.
Just delete it immediately and block their numbers.
If you call it back, that’s the code that would be used to hack your account even with your 2-step verification.
Fraudsters are working tirelessly n harder daily.
