A new scam is doing the rounds claiming to be the Commonwealth Bank over text message.
ABC News posted a picture of the text which alerts recipients that their account has been blocked and urges them to enter details to rectify it.
- Commonwealth Bank will never send an SMS that asks you to confirm, update or disclose personal or banking information, and most financial institutions follow the same practice. Never click on a link provided in such an SMS.
- Instructions on how to send these messages to Commonwealth Bank for further investigation is listed here.
