Australians are being warned about an SMS scam where recipients receive a text message advising them they have an unpaid toll to pay. The message includes a link to pay a bill or provide details.
- If you receive a text message or any other
communication requesting payment, do not
click on any links
- Delete it right away
- Report scam messages to the toll provider or via the Federal
Government’s Scam Watch website.
- If you’ve clicked on a link or provided any personal details from a message you suspect is a scam, you should contact us immediately. You can also lock your card instantly from within the app. We will arrange to cancel your card and order you a new one.
- Only ever manage your account and payments via the provider’s secure app or by navigating directly to the provider’s website. This means typing in the URL yourself and not relying on links, bookmarks or any other shortcut.
