December 2012 - Important message for Internet Banking customers
Customers have recently been targeted with a hoax email leading to a false bank website.
The email asks ANZ customers to confirm their account information by clicking on the link provided in the e-mail. When the link in the email is clicked on, a false ANZ Internet Banking log on page appears and account information may be captured if details are entered.
Under no circumstances should you click on the link, reply to the email or provide any of the requested details.
Always ensure that you only log on to ANZ Internet Banking by typing www.anz.com/papuanewguinea into the address bar, rather than following links to the ANZ website. Disregard any emails that advise otherwise.
Customers who have received the email and are concerned should contact the ANZ Internet Support Centre on +675 321 1079.
