We have seen a new trend in relation to Vishing. Permanent tsb customers have been receiving calls claiming to be from various external agencies such as Law Enforcement or Utility companies such as phone/broadband providers.
In all cases a bill payment is set up on accounts either by the customer themselves or remotely by the caller. You may be requested to provide a one-time passcode which will validate the payment set up.
Any unsolicited contact by telephone/text or email requesting banking security information should be treated as highly suspicious. Always independently check that the person is who they say they are. Remember that criminals can spoof phone numbers and mimic e-mail addresses.
