We have been made aware of a recent scam involving one of our customers who was advised that we had changed our banking details and requesting payment of their invoice to be deposited into a new account.
They were then pressured to make payment immediately even though the account was not due.
Please be on the alert for any such emails and be advised that we have been and continue to bank with the CBA Young since switching from ANZ in 2017.
Do not hesitate to contact our office to confirm our details if you suspect fraudulent activity.
The ACCC Scamwatch website advises:
Scams target people of all backgrounds, ages and income levels across Australia. There's no one group of people who are more likely to become a victim of a scam, all of us may be vulnerable to a scam at some time.
Scams succeed because they look like the real thing and catch you off guard when you’re not expecting it. Scammers are getting smarter and taking advantage of new technology, new products or services and major events to create believable stories that will convince you to give them your money or personal details.
