It has come to our attention that a geolocation service is advertising “Locate a mobile in 2 Min” and “Locate any mobile Now”.
But this is not always possible. This location service will only work if the link is accepted by a recipient using that phone number.
The Terms and Conditions (fine print) explains in point 3 “Payment does not guarantee geolocation, since in case the person is missing, the mobile has been stolen, the device is turned off or the think sent through the text message has not been accepted, your GPS position could not be located.”
Lost your phone? Don't lose your money too!

The contactless PIN limit has been temporarily doubled to reduce instances of physical contact with PIN keypads.
Australians are being urged to stay home unless shopping for necessities to help stop the spread of Covid19. As a result many are reducing the number of times a week they shop and spending more in single transactions instead. The new $200 limit will assist to accommodate for this new trend in consumer behaviour.
The $200 Contactless PIN limit will be applied from Monday 6 April, on a 3 month temporary basis, unless an extension is deemed necessary.
During the roll out phase you may still be asked for a PIN if your balance is over $100. If this occurs simply enter your PIN as normal to proceed.
