She claimed she is from Commonwealth Bank. She asked me to provide personal details for updating their file. A little bit suspective, but I cooperate with her anyway. Claimed to be Jay from the Commonwealth Bank. Knew my first name, but strange, I don't have any accounts with the CBA. Must be using CBA like some scammers use Telstra, thinking that most people will have an account. Caller: I missed it
However I received an email from CBA said they attempted to contact me to collect some information: Source of funds and Source of wealth,they need to update it.
they asked me to call back 1300 077 141(option 1).looks no problems.
claimed to be calling from CBA, asking me about my name, address and source of income. I fell suspicious, and confronted him how do I know he is calling from CBA, apparently he became nervous. better not to cooperate next time. Told me he was from the commonwealth bank and wanted to update my accounts. I ask them give me a phone number to call back. Then they give me the number1300 077 141, but I can not find the number in commonwealth bank web. Caller: J from Commonwealth Bank
Got a call from J from Commonwealth Bank on (02) 8055 4001. Requested an email be sent to me from them to confirm they were whom they say they were.

I called back number (02) 8055 4001 reached IVR for a company called Commonwealth Bank. Caller: CBA call centre
Is legit..confirming details.
Left message to return call to CBA on 1300 077 141
Caller: Comm Bank
Legit call, but in saying this, I'm always skeptical and contacted the bank first and found the department that was reaching out to me. The details of the preliminary call was on record and I was comfortable to proceed with the call.
New government regulations requiring banks to update their customer profiles - generic questions, nothing overly specific.
Always check, and always make sure you call them before imparting information.
