Should we complete a SAR regarding this scenerio?

We have a customer call and advise someone identifing themselves as a Bank Employee and advising that the customer had won a vacation from the bank and they requested account information for verification.
This customer was suspicious and gave no information.

IMO, without a named suspect and dollar amount, I don't think a SAR is required, nor would a SAR really provide law enforcement any real info to investigate.
I've just writed a wrong.

We've had a number of these type calls. The more common one tells the customer that their account information is being sold on the internet but for XX $ the bank will place an internet fraud blocker on their account. A number of the callers have used my full name and title.

We have not filed SAR's for the very reasons cited by GuitarDude.
If you approach life with pure logic you can avoid almost all of the fun.
