Covid 19 Scams

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Written by Tahlia Johnson

Attention Members:

 

It has come to our attention that scammers are trying to take advantage of the Covid 19 situation and vaccination program.

Please ensure you only use the myGov website to try and obtain your vaccination certificate (https://my.gov.au/).

Scammers may be trying to coerce you into providing login/personal details while trying to download your vaccination certificate.

Legitimate organisations relating to Covid 19 (such as NSW Health) will not ask to take over your computer and login to your myGov/Medicare or request your Visa card details.

Verified by Visa is now Visa Secure

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Written by Tahlia Johnson

Visa have mandated issuer and merchant upgrades from 3D Secure 1.0 (Verified by Visa) to 3D Secure 2.0 (Visa Secure).

 

This means that the way some online transactions are carried out will be different.

 

Previously, if a merchant used the Verified by Visa service, they would ask for personal information to verify your identity as an added security authentication before a transaction is completed. Moving forward, Visa Secure will now ask you to authenticate a transaction by an SMS One Time Password. This means a text message with a code will be sent to you and this code will need to be entered into the display screen before the transaction can be completed.

 

Due to this change, it is imperative that we have current mobile numbers on our system as if we don’t, this will mean transactions are declined.

 

Not all online merchants use this service however it is becoming more prevalent due to the added security it facilitates for both the merchant and the purchaser.
