Vishing, is like phishing, except they call you

Vishing is a social scamming method similar to phishing, except that scammers will try to trick the victim through a telephone call or even an Internet call such as Skype or FaceTime. As in other forms of phishing, the scammers target important personal information such as credit card data, passwords, emails and so on.

Voice phishing is the criminal practice of using social engineering over the telephone system to gain access to private personal and financial information from the public for the purpose of financial reward. It is sometimes referred to as ‘vishing‘, a word that is a combination of “voice” and phishing.
