Exclamation Usaa Fraud Attempt

I want to make sure no fellow ///M3 members fall for this. I am currently stationed in Germany so calling USAA by Skype is a must for me at times. I accidentally called the USAA number but ending it with 8772 when it should have been 8722. When the call was answered a no shot voice copy of the automated USAA lady came on saying congratulations on winning a cruise. I was a bit thrown off at first but followed through with it. As soon as they wanted my card information I asked them to wait while I call my bank. Those scum bags actually waited while I called USAA to find out that it was not a promotion they were doing. The USAA representative was the one who pointed out to me that I dialed the wrong number.....that was a close one! Be careful out there peeps, it's a crazy world we live in.

Yeah I think these cons have several numbers close to what USAA uses. This is not the first I've heard of this type of scam from overseas.
