This phone number called me saying that they were with Venmo, and were calling to dispute a charge they got for $100 out of my account. They said this looked out of pocket as the state I am from is not the one where the charge came from. They then said they would be sending a text code to my phone and I simply needed to repeat the number back to them. Then the conversation got even more weird as I did not receive the texts, and the man said he would use my email to contact me with a code. I received no email from them, but instead got a text with a link to change my password. The man then instructed me to change my password to "Venmo####" with the # being the last four digits of my phone number. Thinking this was suspicious I hung up, but I wanted to warn as this can happen to anyone!
