Well, there is an another Cyber fraud or SMS scam is rotating around, like in US, you may receive a (fake) text message on your cell phone like: Your debit card is locked for security reasons, call this ***** phone number to unlock it instantly!

Never Do

What to do?

Never call that phone number mentioned in the SMS, instead call your bank or debit card provider phone number, printed on the back of your little plastic money! You will be safe,

This scam works on the line of email used to hack bank account or such, when someone opens a link in hacker's email to his bank he routs to he hackers' website, and as he fill his login details, things go out of his control!

The phone number is though may be from US in this debit card scam but the person lived out of US, so the law becomes diluted, cyber crime is always tough to locate or punish as this involves the real countries (not virtual) and many laws of land hinders!
