Who hasn’t heard that phrase? Do you know what it means? Would you hand over sensitive information after hearing it?
I met an old friend recently. He currently makes some extra money at home doing transcription for a US company. One of the audio files he had to transcribe was from a telephone conversation made in Australia. The customer was asked to give their card details (all of them) along with their name and address. The customer even made sure to demand that the details would not be kept.
I’m sure it couldn’t happen here, or could it?
