ANZ is urging customers to be wary online as a new scam aiming to trick people into handing over their details is circulating on social media.
ANZ Regional Executive Pacific, Sarah Stubbings says just one example is a message on Facebook Messenger that appears to be ANZ branded, claiming to contain a link to a promotion to win $4,000.
She says this is not legitimate and could result in malicious software being installed which can later steal banking log in details.
Stubbings says if you receive this message, do not click on the link and if you are concerned that you may have responded to or acted on a scam compromising your personal details, please contact ANZ immediately.
She adds your digital personal information is just as valuable to a scammer as your money, so always be careful about the information you share online.
She says if something does not seem right, or is unexpected, question it.
Stubbings adds ANZ will never contact customers asking for their account details, financial details, or their log in details for ANZ Internet Banking or the ANZ Pacific App.
