I don't want to be rude, but if you fall for that you have to be especially stupid. I can't think if one single person that would be that stupid.

Yeah, would be people with no idea how credit cards work, sometimes you'd just need to send them a completed form, mostly you don't even have to do that, they just stop the transactions and they sure don't need an OTP to do that.

don't laugh... as IT guy, I've seen a few employees in the past fall for very similar things on phone and computer.
but as you say, if you fall for that, then you deserve what you get, and not expect any sympathies
quite hilarious what some people fall for.... the truth can be stranger than fiction

Soft targets like elderly people tend to believe this story, unfortunately.

Shudder to think what the scams will be like when we fall into the above category.
