I received a message from commonwealth bank group asking for me to update my details online due to some changes in their system.

Here it is:

Hi Awynne, this isn't a message we would send, however it would be best to check with Commonwealth Bank as to whether they have issued it. Generally we would never ask you to click a link in a message or email, rather we would ask you to contact us or login via our public website. Thanks!
