I’ve recently been scammed online when trying to buy second hand tickets. I’ve transferred this person a certain amount of money, (still says it’s being processed due to the public holidays) and have received nothing in return. 

I was wondering if there was any way i can get my money back before it goes into his account????

Hi @CE, so sorry to see that this has happened.
We can certainly attempt a recall - you'd just need to call our Contact Centre on 13 17 19. Alternatively you can log in to your Online Banking and select "Message us Now" from a PC, or "Ask Us" via the Mobile App, where a member of our Online Team can help out with this.
Please note we can't guarantee the recall, so if we're unsuccessful you may wish to consider looking at independent legal advice. Our teams are available 24/7 so if you'd like to give it a go, you can call or message as above at any time.
Thank you.
