Consider this scenario described by a Venmo user: Six calls in the space of 50 minutes, none of which you answer. The voicemail you get seems confusing: “. . . you've requested this account. If it was not you, press 1.” Then you get a text from Venmo with a code, then another call asking for the code. Be careful! It’s a scammer pretending to be Venmo to get into your account.
