Called me from several different mobile numbers claiming to be from visa and mastercard security department and said there was a suspicious transaction made on my account. Was very rude when I questioned them and gave me (02) 8006 5260 to call. Haven’t bothered since reading these comments Caller: Jennifer and Jason claiming to be from commonwealth bank
Same thing happened to me! $1,400 from Silcon , told me to download app. Hung up and called comm bank who confirmed scam.

Comm bank security dept (Indian man) investigating a suspicious transaction for $1400 in WA made on an iPad.
Asked me to download an app “quick access” and “allow them” to remote in so they could stop payment. Before doing this, I questioned them they asked me to call (02)800 625 60 & verify his ID (C00914). I hung up & called the number on my C/Card.
An Indian woman was calling me on my mobile with the same spiel. I told them I was on hold with the bank & she was getting aggressive telling me to hang up & talk to her as she’s from the bank.
Caller: Michael Gartry
Got a call from mobile number 0474 077 062 claiming to be from the securities and verification team and that there was a transaction of $1,200 to Silicon Travels made on my card. Once I advised that wasn't me, he wanted me to download the support app so they could help me. Gave me the same number (02) 8006 2560 to call and verify his details, even claimed he was located at 800 Burke St, Melbourne.
I called Westpac fraud straight away and they have confirmed they received 3 other calls this morning about the same thing.
