Watch out. This is a sophisticated scam. It's not a random message. They actually know the last four digits of my debit card and they have informed me that the card ending in those numbers was successfully removed from Google Pay. Then they list this 1800 number as the contact number for more information.
I'm sure that if you call it, they will ask you to identify yourself, and then they will have everything they need to use your card or take your identity.
Says my google pay has been deactivated and to call a 1800 number.
Scam don't call
I also thought this was a scam but I called Suncorp by the website number and they informed me it wasn’t a scam and that is a Apple Pay number that gets automated to Suncorp bank so don’t freak out it’s not a scam I got a text today saying my card was successfully updated on Apple Pay - it fair dinkum looks like it comes from Suncorp AND they have the last four digits of my card. How is this possible!! Saying they are suncorp and my card ending with **** was removed from Google play, scam. Very clever scam, Caller: Australian Bank - However, i think its a scam
I received both a sms and an email advising they were from [name] bank and that my card had been removed from google pay. To call 1800 290 869 if i had any issues
I googled the bank's phone number and called that number to verify if 1800 290 869 was known to them and it wasn't
The next day i used google pay, without issue.... this was yet another clue that this is more than likely a scam
Worryingly 1800 290 869 people had my phone number, email and last four digits of my card [i suspect they got this via an NFC skimmer]
regardless...my advise - google the bank's phone number and call that number and NEVER call 1800 290 869 [as they will get your personal info, under the guise they are verifying your identify for security purposes]
Scam Pretending to be Suncorp or other Bank saying your Google Pay has been cancelled.
