Criminals in Eastern Europe have targeted dozens of U.S. banks over the past few years with an elaborate phishing scheme designed to capture victims’ payment card data.

According to PhishLabs, a Charleston, S.C.-based cyber crime prevention firm, the fraudsters are currently compromising as many as 400 payment cards per day through “vishing” attacks, a social engineering ruse that phishes individuals via voice over internet protocol (VoIP) technology.
