 Tips to Help Avoid the Scam

 

  • Treat phone calls, emails or letters from a supplier seeking a change to the bank account details you use to pay them, with caution.
  • Use the correct, independently verified number from the supplier’s website, or the one you have on file, to call a known contact directly to confirm if the request is legitimate.
  • If emailing, type the known email address in the ‘to’ section rather than replying to an email received – scammers often use a very similar email address but with a different suffix or domain name.
  • Know that a BSB search, which can easily be done online, will reveal details about a bank account you have been asked to send to.
  • Remember words you enter in the free text when conducting bank transfers have no bearing on the transaction – ie writing the name of the account holder does not mean it is that company’s bank account, it can belong to scammers posing as a company.
  • Be aware that scammers have also been known to hack Chief Executive officers’ and managers’ email accounts, then send email authorisation to junior officers for the transfer of money into an account controlled by the offenders.
