Scam number:
  • Email asks you to confirm/update/verify your account data at ANZ Bank by visiting the given link. You will be taken to a spoof website where your details will be captured for the phishers.

  • ANZ Bank never send their users emails requesting personal details in this way.

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website is disguised as " clientinformation/dc.asp".

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website is hidden by a hyperlinked image in the body of the email. This is a technique used to get past spam filters that can only read normal text.

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website has been chosen to look very similar to the actual ANZ Bank URL. Do not be fooled!

  • The entire email consists of nothing but an image that contains all of the body text and links to a spoof website. This is a technique used to get past spam filters that can read normal text but not images.
"ANZ technical services department is carrying out a scheduled software upgrade to improve the quality of services for the ANZ bank customers."
