I would just like to find out why the daily withdraw limit is being raised on bankwest cards to $2000, a limit wich cannot be reduced buy the customer. Wouldnt you agree this is Bankwest not keeping my banking safe.
Exert from Bankwest email
Please be aware that the daily withdrawal limit will be standard across all Bankwest cards and cannot be changed. It may also increase your liability in the event of an unauthorised transactions on your account. So remember to report any suspicious transactions on your account as soon as you notice them and let us know if your card is lost or stolen.
I also do not like how you say this is for the convienence of the customer. I feel you are intentionally making my Bankwest cards and furthermore my account unsafe. If you want to increase the card withdraw limit wouldnt it be better to give the customer the power of choice to reduce the limit rather than imposing it on them therfore increasing there liability and account saftey.
I look foward to your reply.
