The ANZ Phishing SMS Text Message

ANZ Phishing SMS Text Message
URGENT – Dear ANZ Customer, Please review and update your ANZ account to avoid suspension

ANZ customers who have already clicked on the link in the fake SMS text message, and who have attempted to sign into a website that they were taken, are asked to change their ANZ passwords, check their accounts for any discrepancies and contact ANZ immediately.

Remember, the best protection against phishing scam is to never click on a link to sign into online accounts. Always go directly to your service providers’ website and sign-in from there instead. ANZ customers should only sign into their accounts at https://www.anz.com/, or from their legitimate mobile app.
