How to protect yourself
- Phishing – Attackers may use your personal details to target you with convincing emails, texts and calls. Be suspicious of unsolicited requests for your personal or financial details.
- Financial details – If your financial data was compromised, be vigilant against suspicious activity on your bank accounts. If you notice any unauthorised transactions, notify your bank or card company.
- Passwords – If your password was compromised, perform a password reset on any other online account where you’ve used the same one.
- Report - If you think you have been a victim of fraud or cybercrime, report it to us.
