I’m from India and today I received a call from +862128913333 at 1PM according to my country’s timing. I picked it up and a guy with American accent said that he is from PayPal. I thought that it was some kind of verification process and said yes.
He told me that this call will be recorded and told me my full name and asked me if I’m the person who is talking. I replied yes, and then he said he is calling to verify my withdrawal confirmation from PayPal to my bank account and want to check whether it is me or not. I thought he knew my full name and phone number so it’s not some kind of fraud call and actually from PayPal.
He asked me to tell the Gmail (PayPal) address. I told him the Gmail address. Then he asked me from where I’m I receiving this money, I replied that I’m receiving this from Fiverr.com. Then he asked me that what service I provide on Fiverr. And I replied that I provide writing service. He then said ok sir, your account is verified and thanks and cut the call.
A few minutes later I Googled the number and found that it’s a fraud number from china. I’m really scared now.
Did I get scammed?
How he got to know my name and number details?
What do I do now?
