Beware of text message scam targeting NAB customers
Watch out opening any links sent to you via text message as they might be harmful.
I recieved a text message this morning which is undoubtedly a scam. I know this as I am not a NAB customer!
However, if you recieved this and were a NAB customer, you might be less discerning of its deviant nature.
The website that the text message links to is not the real NAB website, I was suspisious of this because:
it is very unusual for a company to have a separate mobile website
a login page for a website will be denoted with a slash coming after the .com, such as www.nab.com.au/login, rather than within the domain name before the '.com' or .com.au'
NAB is an Australian company and therefore very likely to be '.com.au' website, rather than a '.com' website.
A quick Google search confirms the real NAB website as www.NAB.com.au.
Keeping an eye out for strange details in online messages can help to keep you and your finances safe and secure.
