(03) 8641 9083 has now called in excess of 20 times today...says from NAB needing to verify a credit card fraud transaction. Wanting me to read out the 6 digit code that has now been sent at least 10 times. I phoned NAB and they said that they would never ask you to read out a 6 digit number IF they call you - that only happens if you phone them directly, in order to verify your ID. Don't think they are ligit after talking to NAB Caller: (03) 8641 9083 SSCAMMERS
I saw this thread whilst I was on the phone to these people pretending to be NAB and it saved my life!!
Yesterday, a public holiday in Victoria (AUS) I got a txt message from AUSPOST and the text thread had been about my previous orders; Your ASOS order is arriving today- that sort of thing.
I got a text saying someone had tried to reach you but couldn't get through, reschedule the delivery here.
I click the link. I put in my address to redeliver. The next red flag was a small payment of $1.50 for redelivery. I just thought the payment is going out to those working on the public holiday.
Anyway, next day I get a call from these guys saying they're from NAB. A very weird and over the top english accent was the next red flag.
After telling me that my account had been compromised and asking me to confirm in my online banking ACC that I can see the $19.89 withdrawn to a random store- proof that my account was hacked.
They said they've blocked $3000 other attempted transactions because they looked suss because I'm in Vic and the transactions were in Canberra and that's why I couldn't see it on my account?!
After back and forth with them, the person kept putting me on hold to speak to their supervisor and kept saying it was "very rare" and reassuring me that it is fine but they can see that the hacker is in my online banking app- yikes!
But here's the kicker... the fake english dude says, "Ok, Bridget, what we're going to do is to set up a divergent account so they cant access your funds. You will need to put in my supervisor's name for security reasons so they think it is not your account."
I said "datz weird....datz suspicious" and put the number in Google, found this thread and hung up.
Called NAB they cancelled that card and gave me a lecture on online safety.
Caller: Said from Comm Bank
Got a call from this number telling that he was from Comm Bank fraud department. Keep asking to verify details but the amount mentioned keeps changing as there were 2 persons on the line. Asked where this call came from and was told Sydney but prefix from Victoria. Probably these scammers hijacked the number for their own gains. They hung up immediately after telling than they were scammers.
Caller: Caller claiming to be NAB
Asked about suspect transactions on a card lost and cancelled months ago. Scam caller don't waste tour time
Pretending to be NAB fraud dept.
ABSOLUTELY FRAUD BEWARE
Caller: An arsehole
Scam - do not answer
Caller: Scammer using NAB's official number
Summary:**Scammers hijacked AusPost's and NAB's official text numbers + emails; tried to talk me into transferring all my money into a new NAB account** Please note if you have been contacted for suspicious account activity, the only way to verify is to HANG UP, then CALL NAB YOURSELF. Do not trust messages even if they are from official numbers/ email accounts - they can be hijacked.
Situation: I ordered a product on Catch last night at 11pm, got a text and email from AusPost (official number) that I needed to transfer an additional $1.50 to re-schedule a delivery. I put in my credit card details and paid, however no transaction was indicated on my online banking account. I got multiple calls from NAB's official number ((03) 8641 9083). Like a previous post has mentioned, this guy had a strong ENGLISH ACCENT. He said that there has been suspicious activity, and went on to give me a 2 min lecture on phishing scams, and that I should have checked if the AusPost link sent to me was actually official. He asked for my total bank account balance to "verify" my identity (RED FLAG!).
Then, he ran a 2 minute "scan" of my account, and told me that NAB has frozen the account, and they'd be sending me a new card soon. He said we can do a complete transfer of your money + transaction history onto my new account via online banking. Instructed me to raise my transfer limit, and then transfer my account to a new BSB + Account Number. He said I could only access my account after all the transfers of money+data has been completed (RED FLAG 2!). After the first transfer (for 'verification'), he tried to get me transfer the rest of the money (RED FLAG 3!. Tried to tell me that even if I went to the branch to verify myself, they would run me through the same process. Luckily I followed my instincts, hung up and went to an NAB branch + called NAB's fraud team. Turns out he was a total scam.

Caller: (03) 8641 9083
Caller claimed to be from NAB (I'm not a NAB customer), and to be calling to confirm a transaction they had received. When pushed on it, he didn't seem to know who my bank or credit account was with, and I didn't tell him, but he claimed my credit card had been compromised and a $300 had been authorised from it as a donation. When I suggested that would be a matter for my bank to deal with, not the NAB he said he would organise someone from my bank to call me back. I told him I had it in hand and he promptly hung up on me. No idea what the scam is but long wait at the start of the call and caller had an Indian accent.
Caller: Overseas caller
Got a call from overseas. They are using the NAB banks number to disguise themselves
