ANZ and Westpac targets for bogus bank fraud

04 July 2003  |  5926 views  |  0 ANZ and Westpac targets for bogus bank fraud

ANZ and Westpac customers have been targeted in the latest round of bogus bank e-mail fraud to hit the Australian financial sector.

The spam e-mail, which goes under the subject 'Security Server Update', preys on consumer fears about Internet banking fraud and urges customers to reactivate their accounts on a fake Web page created from the original bank source code.

Both IP addresses for the replica ANZ and Westpac sites are located in Florida. The banks are working with the Australian Federal Police to have the sites shut down and trace the source of the e-mails.

This is the latest in a catalogue of similar e-mail and bogus bank frauds to hit the Australian banking community.

Surrey Hills police have already charged a 25-year old man in connection with an earlier e-mail scam that duped some Commonwealth Bank customers into revealing their NetBank Internet account details at a bogus CBA site housed in Florida.
