Other scams include vishing, in which a swindler calls a consumer pretending to be either their bank or the police, and says that the consumer's card has been compromised, persuading the victim to transfer funds, withdraw money or reveal security information, graphene scam, PBX phone fraud, auction sites, phishing and others.
