ANZ warns about text scam circulating around NZ today

21/09/2018

Be aware that there is an ANZ text scam circulating today. ANZ has issued a warning after hearing multiple accounts from their customers explaining how they received a text to divulge their personal information. 

The text explains that you have been locked out of your account and that you should sign in, and then attach the link to follow, which is scarily similar to the official ANZ site. The fake website will then take your banking details. 

An ANZ spokesperson is unsure how many people have been affected as of yet.

If customers get a text message of this kind, they should delete it immediately and not click on the link or provide any information.

He also has recommended if you have already been caught by this scam, to change your password and contact the bank immediately.
