Discovered today that someone has overnight managed to empty one of my bank accounts to the tune of $1500+. Bank (ANZ) and Police advised.
In the absence of any other explanation, it would appear that access details were probably garnered by tapping into our home wireless network.
The transaction popped up as an Internet bank transfer, so both access code and password were required to do the deed.
If anyone knows of a Benjamin John McKay, the name of the apparent recipient of this transaction, who is walking around with a $1500 smile on his gob, the Police would be very interested.
I’ma bit less than impressed with the ANZ’s method of dealing with this occurrence. No feedback, and more interested that the fraud is in Police hands and stat decs (very carefully worded) are received than apparently tracking down the above perp.
Bank holiday Monday cannot help.
Police were excellent.
