Rather than jumping through a bunch of legal and technological hoops,
might it not be simpler to ask the person on the other end of the line
for written confirmation of whatever you've discussed before agreeing
to it?  Other options I can think of off the top of my head are a)
physically go to the bank (assuming it's local) and talk to someone in
person, or b) go Luddite on them and conduct all transactions with
them via US Mail.

Walt, who is not a lawyer, nor does he play one on TV.
