I would call you bank and tell them.  They can put an alert on it and watch for suspicious activity.

@JennyW1: The bank should have your address on file, so I agree with the PP. Call the bank and just have them put your account on alert for a while, or see what they can do.

yea I think you’ll be okay. They were probably testing you first, verifying some things they already knew about you, in order to get more information out of you after. Definitely call your bank though, give them the number that called you.

They can’t really do much with your just your phone number and address…

Definitely notify your bank. Unfortunately, identity theft is common and pretty much anyone can get your address online. I would make sure to make an extra effort to pick up your mail so its not sitting if you have a mailbox that is easily accessible to others. 

There are also websites that when you type in the 800 number, you can file a list of complaints or see what other people say about the number. You might want to look it up too just in case.
