The Commonwealth Bank has issued a warning to all customers to be alert for a scam SMS.
To quote their website:
“There are a number of fraudulent emails currently in circulation claiming to be from the Commonwealth Bank. These emails direct recipients to a fake website that could include a request to participate in a survey, update account details, activate cards, win prizes and money, say you qualify for fee refunds or unlock frozen accounts. These sites capture all confidential banking information entered.
Although these emails may appear genuine, they are fraudulent and should be deleted immediately.”

NOTE: even if you see this warning elsewhere, its good practice to always go to the source (in this case the banks website), and validate that it’s a legitimate warning.
