last week I was hit with an unauthorised transaction on my account
with the sms code generator in place with Bankwest already
could an online transaction option be put in place to allow confirmation of online transactions
#. opt into it
#. set your online limit (expenses over $150 say)
then any time your accounts are used for online transactions,
as the authorisation appears in our accounts
we receive a text along the lines of
on this date, for this value, with this vendor, this amount is being transacted - IS THIS YOU? - please reply yes or no
allows the transaction through
stops it in its tracks
This would result in
less unauthorised transactions and cards being canceled and monies reimbursed etc
and less vendors being transacted by scammers
I would even pay the 5c or whatever per sms to be able to avoid what I am currently going through
