    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.

    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

    has anyone thought of calling Westpac.!? I have received many verification codes over the years, and I'm a foundation customer, the code always arrive within a minute of the involved transaction being action-ed to allow you to 1. verify that it is you 2. for the transaction to continue to finality. One would have thought that Reverse Australia with so many calls concerning a Bank that THEY would get to the bottom of it. Or perhaps is Reverse Australia simply just an automated Computer

    If someone has a Westpac account and transfers money to another account this is the number that they receive a text from with a code you need to enter to confirm the transaction. If you receive this but dont bank with westpac chances are you may have a recycled number that is on someones westpac file but out of date or when setting up their account they accidently miskeyed their mobile number or accidently gave the wrong number the phone number at the bottom is what you should ring if you receive this text by error and if you google it, it is a genuine westpac phone number

    Westpac security service. Sends a code you need to confirm a cash transfer/payment. Legitimate service.

    No explanation or relevant information.

    If it was Westpac, then they are incompetent and time wasting with rubbish like this.

    Treated as bullsh*te by me..........

    I have had 3 SMS security code to approve online transaction since 12 July 2021. I have had my mobile number for many many years & was previously a Westpac customer but not for 15 plus years, if this is a Westpac system I am confused. Have reported “misuse” to Telstra.

    A verification code sent sms at 2 am to my phone activate in 10 min or its obsolete. Well I do not bank with westpac. Defiantly scam. Please do not try to activate or u give access to your phone info. And for the record my phone number I have had for over 10 years. Banks do not do business this way. Go to your own app on your phone check there not some random sms
