An Indian man called, claiming to be from Lazada, asked me if I had purchased an apple imac from Lazada yesterday. I said no. He said someone from Germany hacked into my account and tried to make a purchase which was now pending. The Indian man said he would trigger an OTP to my SMS and I was to give him the code so he could cancel the transaction for me. I received the code, but I told him I did not want to give him. He said, “fine, don’t come back crying to Lazada when you lost your money”. After hanging up, I tried the “forget password” feature and realised that was what he did to trigger the code to my SMS.
