Unfortunately people get caught week after week. We can never say enough: you have to be very careful with telephone type fraud, mentions Mr. Levant.

If in doubt, it is better to check with your financial institution, advises the spokesperson.
If people feel like they might be giving away sensitive information, it's up to them to contact their banking institution directly to ensure the request is legitimate.
Banking institutions will never ask for personal information, either by telephone or directly in person, specifies Jean-Sébastien Levant.
