Security and scams

Scams change all the time, but their goal is always the same: your money, your information or both.

We take the protection of your personal and financial information very seriously and have comprehensive security measures in place to help protect your accounts and personal information from unauthorised access.

Whilst P&N Bank has these security measures in place, it is also very important that you know the common warning signs of fraud and scams. Unfortunately, once money has been transferred to a scammer it is extremely difficult to recover – especially if you have authorised the transaction. That's why it's critical you always employ good online security practices and remain scam aware.

It is a common misconception that banks and financial institutions have insurance against fraud and scam losses, so the more you can do to protect yourself and your money, the better.

Protect yourself from scams

Scammers and fraudsters are getting increasingly sophisticated in their attempts to get your money or personal details, so you should always be overly cautious. Unfortunately, in 2022 Australians reported a total loss of $568,654,974 to scams.

Common types of scams

 Warning signs of a scam

  • You receive an unsolicited offer that comes out of the blue.
  • It sounds too good to be true.
  • There are promises of low effort and no risk, but big rewards.
  • You’re asked for personal information (eg. banking details or security passcodes).
  • There is urgency, or a time-limit for what you’re asked to do.
  • A business or organisation you usually trust contacts you in an unusual way or asks you to do something they usually wouldn’t.

Different types of scams work in different ways. Make sure you’re familiar with the key signs to look out for.
