My daughter received a bizarre text message on her mobile - from mobile phone number 0448 222 001 - here is what the text message said "To confirm payee hi pty ltd BSB account enter Westpac Protect SMS Code 711271. Unexpected Message? Call 1300 655 505" Caller: OS SSSCAAAAMMERS
I received a text message as follows “To access your tax details please enter SMS Code 337453. Unexpected message? Call 1300 655 505” sus as! This is the westpac number. If I had tax issues I’d call the ATO. Got an email purporting to be westpac. They gave this number as their contact us number. When you look at their email, it is very strange. It is "onlinebanking @ email8.westpac.com.au". The term email8 is very odd and I believe it shows these people are scammers. westpac SPAM!!!! I received the same message. Is address does not appear to be secure. There is no https. How can I be assured that when applying online that my private information is secure?
