Australians are warned of an unexpected e-mail that could make them the victim of a scam.
The email with the title & # 39; You Have One New Important Message & # 39; claims to be from National Australia Bank (NAB) and uses the display name & # 39; NAB Online & # 39 ;.
Companies or individuals targeted are then notified that their card has been put on hold after & # 39; use in another location & # 39 ;.

Users are then advised to click on a link in the email to verify their details and are redirected to a website that looks like the NAB.
The user is then asked to enter his personal data, such as security data and payment card verification.
NSW Police advised all potential victims to immediately delete the e-mail to prevent their data from being stolen.
NAB & # 39; s Chief Enterprise Security Officer David Fairman said they are doing everything they can to ensure that their customers are protected against phishing.
"At NAB, we are passionate about doing what we can to ensure that all our customers and small businesses are protected against cyber crime and fraud," he said.
& # 39; NAB invests heavily in the latest cyber security and fraud detection capabilities to protect our customers, and we monitor customer accounts for suspicious activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. & # 39;
He said the bank has a & # 39; adult security awareness program & # 39; and that customers can find videos, articles, and training modules to ensure that they are protected.
He also said that security warnings are published as soon as they are aware of this to inform customers.

How to prevent you from being scammed
To reduce the risk of being misled by one of these scams, you must immediately delete all emails that:
- Seem from a well-known organization, usually a bank or service provider and are not addressed by you and may contain poor grammar.
- Ask to click on a link in the email to access their website – your bank will always ask you to go directly to their website by typing their URL in the address field of your web browser, as a precautionary measure.
- Ask you to submit personal information to which the sender must already have access.
