Posing as a westpac service. Requests confirmation for alleged limit increase. This is not spam. It is the Westpac verification service. this is definite scam. Rang number and recorded message says this number has been disconnected. those saying it was correct westpa number are connected to the scam and trying to trick you into following message details and you loose $500. This is not a scam. It is part of Westpac's 2-stage verification of payment requests. I log into my account, tell Westpac to make a certain payment. Within a minute or two I receive an SMS from this phone number number which shows a six-digit (I think) code. I then type this code into the payment transaction that is not yet complete. Once this code has been verified by Westpac's computer, the transaction becomes authorised and is implemented. Quite a secure system - a hacker would have to have hacked into my account, and also stolen my mobile, to complete the transaction. Verification code from Westpac for payment. Westpac transfer confirmation code. important and not spam Westpac security service. Sends a code you need to confirm a cash transfer/payment. Legitimate service. I was sent a message: Help us protect you against scams by not sharing your Westpac Protect SMS Codes. It is definitely a scam even 6 years later they are still using the same phony mobile number. They rang me on my unlisted number which the bank has no knowledge of so whoever reckons it is not a scam go ahead and lose your money westpac code sms SAFE SMS: Westpac verifying payment Not spam. Legit Westpac number. Caller: Supposedly Westpac

Caller: Westpac Text
This IS A LEGITIMATE WESTPAC contact number.
I personally called Westpac. I went through their security process and after being placed on hold whilst the operator checked, he confirmed that it is indeed a LEGITIMATE Westpac text asking customers to protect against scams by not sharing your SMS Codes.
The texts have NO LINKS and don't ask for you to contact them.
If you think that I am a scamner, ring Westpac yourself and check with them.
Caller: 0448 655 505
I was asked to confirm a payment which I had NOT done - looks legitimate, but is NOT A WESTPAC verification. Also given 2 security codes to approve online transaction - I had NOT DONE any online transactions. Another SMS "Help us protect you against scams by not sharing your Westpac Protact SMS Codes - ALSO A SCAM. I spent an hour with my bank yesterday and was told that these are ALL SCAMS and NOT SENT BY WESTPAC. Don't be fooled - if you receive one of these messages and are concerned - call Internet Fraud 1300 364 294 / 2 / 2
This number, like many other "mobile" numbers are most probably VoiP.
