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. Caller: 0448 222 001
Received this txt message twice - IGNORE and BLOCK this number!
Enter SMS Code: 557846 to confirm payment of $1177.00 to BSB 084263 account 681729381. Never share your SMS codes. Unexpected SMS? Call 1300 655 505.
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 transfer confirmation code. important and not spam Westpac security service. Sends a code you need to confirm a cash transfer/payment. Legitimate service. Caller: Westpac
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receive this but dont bank with westpac chances are you may have a recycled number that is on someones westpac file but out of date or when setting up their account they accidently miskeyed their mobile number or accidently gave the wrong number the phone number at the bottom is what you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
I was sent a message: Help us protect you against scams by not sharing your Westpac Protect SMS Codes. westpac code sms A message to contact Westpac Live RE banking.. SCAM Claiming to be Westpac but I am not with Westpac. Basically saying the number has changed and have been getting these messages for a few weeks now Scam did not ask for a verification code scammer safe WBC 2 messages - 1 A message providing a security code for Mobile banking device.
