Fake bank employee

A U. of I. student reported that she received a text message purporting to be from her bank asking her if a transaction was valid or fraudulent. She replied that it was fraudulent. The student then received a call from someone purporting to be a bank employee who asked for account information, passcodes, personal identification numbers, and Social Security information, which the student provided. The student later observed nearly $8,000 in fraudulent charges to her account.
