Pindrop Security reports that cyber-criminals are reserving phone numbers that are similar to the contact numbers of banks, credit unions and other financial institutions in their efforts to gather financial information from customers.

In a study of phone numbers for some 600 institutions, the company found close variants used in fraud against 103 organizations, suggesting that attackers had targeted at least 17 percent of financial firms by selecting phone numbers designed to fool customers.

Customers should call the phone number listed on their bank's Website, or at least double check any phone numbers, to see if they are connected to fraud complaints.
