Hello, my name is Paul and the reason I am contacting you is because I was reviewing my Bankwest accounts at around 11:30pm on Thursday the 18th Of October 2018 and wish to report that there are 2 transactions that I did not conduct, approve or authorise anyone else to conduct, approve or authorise on my behalf.

Here are the details Bankwest Offset Transaction A/C with the last two numbers ending in 71

Items from the following two McDonalds Outlets both of which are located in Sydney

Transaction Date:

Wed 17th Oct 2018

$ 3.25 McDonalds


$ 3.65 McDonalds


I very rarely buy anything from McDonalds and I was at North Ryde for most of the day on the day these transactions occurred. I do not own a car and I do not know anyone that lives in either Miranda or Thornleigh

Please urgently advise what action can be taken to prevent any further transactions taking place.


Kind Regards

Paul Wilkins
