ANZ Hoax Email – Account restriction

Customers have recently been targeted with an email claiming to be from ANZ. The email suggests that the customer’s account has been restricted due to suspicious activities.

To regain access to their account, the customer is asked to click on a link to verify their identity.

Under no circumstances should you click on the link or reply to the email. Always ensure that you only log on to ANZ Internet Banking by typing into the address bar, rather than following the links provided in the email to access ANZ website. ANZ will never send you an email asking you to verify or provide your account details, financial details, or login details.

Example of the hoax e-mail:
