In today’s Daily Post it carry a report that some angry ANZ customers have lost a total of over two million vatu in recent weeks in what appears to be a concerted series of unauthorised money transfers between ANZ Vanuatu accounts.
Total losses could be much higher, as it appears that numerous accounts have been affected.
According to Daily Post Media Director, Dan McGarry the victims were shocked and angered when told by ANZ that the money would not automatically be refunded.
It has been confirmed that others have opened criminal complaints with the police.
ANZ is currently conducting an awareness-raising campaign, publishing public service announcements and other media, trying to shed light on some of the most common scams and tactics.
