What is the vishing?

Cyber-crime consisting of fraudulently obtaining confidential data from users by combining the telephone and the internet. The fraudster normally uses two methods. In the first, the victim receives an SMS or an e-mail asking him/her to call a telephone number that looks trustworthy. Once the call is made, an automated voice asks for his/her data. Another method is to use a program to dial random numbers and when someone answers, a recorded voice asks the victim to provide his/her data on the pretext that there is a problem with their service. The term for this new kind of scam is a combination of the words ‘voice’ and phishing.
