Westpac calling to validate a transaction. Good service. It is Bank SA (St George) Can confirm was Westpac fraud team. westpac fraud office got a call today, saying there was fraudulent activity on my account and my card was temporarily blocked, told me to ring number on back of card. called my bank Westpac and they said there was no block on card and no suspicious activity!!!! very strange Legit phone call. Confirming that a credit card transcation I made was really me and not a scammer. Westpac Fraud detection. Identified unauthorised transaction Rang 3 times and hung up. Got a text from St George . I don't have a St George account. Sounds like some sort of scamm. This is a real and legitimate number from Westpac. If you get a call from this number - answer it or call back immediately. I transferred money from my transaction account to a Glibal currency card as I am about to go overseas and literally received the call less than 60 seconds later to confirm the transaction. It is a huge relief to know the bank is actually monitoring transactions and looking out for customers. Thanks to them I know my money is safe. westpac wespac was st george verify fraud as someone tried to use my account at an atm. Missed call, no message left, odd if Westpac or St George as I don't bank with them genuine call from Westpac to verify a suspicious CC transaction Missed a call. I dont bank with Westpc/St George Bank so not sure why I would be receiving calls from them. Legitimate Westpac Number Got call from that number, hung up, looked it up and called back. It was from Westpac Bank verifying a transaction that i had made earlier on in the day. Was glad i called back its bank of melbourne sydney Legit call. I got a call today from St George. They had put a block on my credit card after I made a number of similar transactions in the realm of $400 (four of them) and $900 (another four of them). I googled the number - arrived here - and called back. A recorded message said it was a bank (gave me a choice of banks) and provided the phone number to call them. I then called my bank and had to confirm the transactions were mine. They had blocked my Visa debit card. If you get a call from them - I recommend you call back immediately as your card is probably blocked. As Nat said - better safe than sorry. Definitely helpful, it was st.george calling me about a fraud transaction. Very lucky to have them.
