Bank­ing scam resur­faces

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

HUNDREDS of peo­ple have been hit with the lat­est round of text spam alerts, falsely claim­ing to be from the NAB.

The texts are sent ran­domly to cus­tomers and non-cus­tomers, urg­ing the users to click on a link to a fake web­site to con­firm their de­tails. The spam scam is the lat­est ver­sion of a year-long phish­ing campaign.

NAB say they are con­stantly try­ing to shut the fake sites down.

The mes­sages warn the per­son’s ac­count may be locked, and di­rects them to click on a link to un­lock it.

NAB’s chief en­ter­prise se­cu­rity of­fi­cer David Fair­man said the bank’s anti-fraud ex­perts pro­vided ad­vice to more than 3000 cus­tomers about cy­ber safety.
