My wife has just received a cold call from someone pretending to be Giffgaff and they asked her for a PIN number. Has anyone experienced the same scam. It's my understanding that Giffgaff does not require a PIN number. Any feedback welcomed John pilling

No one from giffgaff would call your wife so it's definitely a scam, unless it was voicemail asking for her voicemail pin that she may have setup? Other than that it's definitely not giffgaff.

Very strange all round. Hard to understand why someone posing as giffgaff asking for a pin that doesn't exist? Have you told anyone at giffgaff about this yet/

Yes be careful as it's definitely a scam.

Never had a call like that myself fortunately.
