Australia Post phishing scam
Your online security is important to us
Examples of phishing messages -
The first six digits of a card number identify which bank issued it, allowing the scammer to identify your bank and then call you, spoofing that bank’s number, or withholding their number.
The scammer may claim to be calling from the bank’s fraud team telling you that you are the victim of an Australia Post phishing scam and that there is a suspicious payment on your card (for the amount you have just ‘authorised’ to be taken on your card).
The scammer may then
- Tell you that there is an internal fraud at Suncorp Bank and you need to move your money to a “safe” account at another bank to protect it. They may send spoofed SMS messages as part of the scam.
If you receive a text message or email that doesn’t feel right, stop, think and call Suncorp Bank on 13 11 55. Never feel pressured to provide your details or take action.
Suncorp Bank will never ask you to transfer money from your account, or to share one time codes with us.
