At the blow In the fake call center, the victim interacts with a criminal who pretends to be an attendant (at a bank or store, for example) and tries to convince him to reveal different types of data.
The credit card sometimes appears as bait: for example, someone made a purchase in a store and, for some reason (such as a company security breach), this information is exposed. Furthermore, the fraudster calls saying that there was a problem with the purchase on the card and asks for some details to resolve it.
Among the most common internet scams is blow of the fake website: the person sees a promotion on social media, or receives a link from a friend, and clicks to be able to buy. You are directed to a page, make the purchase, register your details and that’s it – you fell for the scam.

The victim believes he is on the real website, but when entering his information, the criminal gains access to it.

Sites like Reclame Aqui and Procon usually gather this information.
