Supposed SBB competition
The NCSC is currently receiving numerous reports of a supposed competition run by SBB to celebrate its 120th anniversary and with the possibility of winning CHF 2,000. After answering a few questions, you have to register and a subscription for CHF 14.50 per week is thereby taken out. Ignore this WhatsApp message and do not forward it to your contacts.

Spate of call centre phone calls with fake numbers
Call centres are currently making calls using fake numbers that are actually assigned to private individuals. The number owners are now receiving callbacks from other private individuals, who were notified of missed calls. There can be dozens of such calls. Unfortunately, little can be done about this. Based on experience, the waves subside again after a short time.
