Text message phishing scams

April 2018

Please be aware that customers are being targeted with phishing text messages advising them to click on a link to verify their account, view an internal notification, review unusual account activity or to confirm their mobile number.  The customer is then sent through to a fake site where they are required to enter either their log-in credentials, account and credit card details or personal information.

If you get a text message of this kind, delete it immediately.  Do not click on the link or provide any information.

If you have inadvertently provided your details, please call us immediately on 0800 269 296 (international +64 4 470 3142).
