On this latest scam, the scammer only accepts Mastercard. Now I have been told by the NZ Cooperative Bank who issued me with the debit mastercard that they can do nothing as the money has gone from my account in spite of the fact that I notified them immediately. The scammer does not accept Visa - and I wonder why?
    I think mastercard credit cards will reverse unauthorised charges same as visa. The difference here is probably the difference between a debit and a credit card.

    Zero balance. (not that one)
    Like a few other gems over the years, TAB and the like.
    Why would they ask for an email address when they have just sent you an email.

    Why not reply with spurious data too and see what happens
    I once had a long winding sort of a tech chat with one of those so called "Windows Engineers" that called about a bug he said was on my computer. I didn't give up on the talk, but he did

    Have you advised Westpac? They would email all customers if they know about it, and it's a threat.

    I put it in manually . Have received emails purporting to be from Westpac before too in the past. Westpac do have pretty sophisticated anti phishing/fraud systems . Last time i clicked on a "westpac"email i got a red warning that it was a scam. This warning alert may well have triggered today too.Have told westpac in the past about this and they are very confident in their systems. Contacted them today twice, first time a useless learner bot 2nd one thanking me for my email and i will get an answer within 4 days.

    From ASB's latest results (6% increase NPAT). On to it to counter the growing scams attacks.

    "During the half-year, ASB screened more than 700 million transactions to combat money laundering and financial crime. Additionally, the Bank introduced the compulsory identification of cash depositors to prevent the laundering of financial crime proceeds. Over the same six-month period, ASB sent more than half a million messages via the ASB Mobile app to customers warning them about the latest scams and phishing attacks. The Bank has also alerted more than 4,000 individual customers to suspicious international card transactions."

    Must be my lucky day.Had a ring from "IRD" 048893545 to tell me I'll be locked up if I don't pay my tax. Hmmm,but sounded like a badly recorded message.
    I phoned the IRD to ask when they wanted me locked up and gave them the phone number.
    They will pass it on to their fraud team.
    Try the number if you want to check your status

    ASB's system prevented my stepdaughter from being very disrupted by preventing numerous fraudulent transactions going through from all around Europe.
    It was very weird because she is just about to leave for a few months around Europe which is why it would have been so catastrophic if there was any further delay in being detected.

    Big Ups ASB

    Thank you, kiora.

    Was wondering about the overseas calls to my mobile in the last few days.

    Was never tempted to call the numbers back as they screamed ‘scam’ but good to know how the scam works. 👍
