Two additional things:

Never ever forward OTPs (one-time passwords) to anyone. Especially to no-one claiming to “help” you with your account’s security.

Be super wary with remote access tools like Teamviewer. They’re great support and admin tools and have their relevance. They’re available as well for smartphones and they are widely used for all kinds of scams. Their siblings from the dark side are RATs (remote access trojans). They trick you into granting access to your system without realizing it.

I have on more tip: Lock all features of your physical card which you don’t need. I have locked usage for online purchases, contactless payment and payments via magnetic strip. I need my physical card only for rarely cash withdrawals and so it works only with chip and PIN at the ATM.

@Kamika242 Seems like you’ve turned your card into the ultimate lock-down mode, allowing it to pull off some cash withdrawal missions at the ATM! :sunglasses::boom:
