Fraud is prevalent in today’s society and the best protection is prevention. Sometimes fraud happens so we want to help make sure you are aware of some ways to prevent this.
If you notice any unusual transactions on your account you should immediately contact us. You can also use the online card management icon via internet banking (including after hours) to block your card and prevent any further access.
Any transactions coming from organisations that require a sign in should be contacted directly due to privacy. If these are on your card please contact us so that we can cancel your card to prevent further transactions coming out of your account.
Avoid links or unsecure sites that may infect your device with malware or compromise your details. Check for the padlock before providing your personal information online.
Before signing up to any agreement, including free trials, read the fine print and check the criteria for cancelling. Usually if you need to provide your card details it is NOT FREE.
The Cuscal Vigil Fraud monitoring team may contact you if they notice or block suspicious transactions on your account. If in doubt about the legitimacy of the call, contact them directly on 1300 705 750.
