Startling new research released by the Customer Owned Banking Association (COBA) for Scams Awareness Week…
To guard against unauthorised online transactions, we’ve provided some guidelines on how you can keep your money safe when using your Visa card, phone banking, internet banking and moneytree.
It’s important to ensure that you keep your Visa card, and password secure so you decrease your liability for unauthorised transactions.
Following these guidelines will not determine your liability for losses resulting from unauthorised transactions. Liability for these transactions will be determined by the Conditions of Use applying to your Visa card, phone banking, internet banking, or moneytree, and the provisions of the ePayments Code.
Information about the ePayments Code is available from the Australian Securities & Investments Commission website, www.asic.gov.au. For more information, please call us on 13 22 49.
