Scammers are approaching potential victims and requesting to use their phone to make an emergency call. Or, the scammers request a donation be made to an important cause. In some cases, young children are involved.
With the victimโ€™s phone in hand, the scammers discreetly open banking / payment apps. The scammers then fraudulently transfer funds to themselves or their associates. This can include a large transfer of money in seconds while the victim is unaware. In our case, the victim was distracted.
