Cyber Security Awareness Guide
When you pay a deposit to Mirvac or settlement monies there may be a need for you to pay money to a bank account (either Mirvac, your legal representation or Mirvac’s legal representation). There is a chance that cyber criminals could issue false communications about the relevant bank account in an effort to steal from you.
Use our simple security checklist to help protect yourself.
If an email, call or text doesn't seem quite right, just take a pause. Ask yourself:
- Is the email address correct?
- If the address is correct, does the request seem legitimate?
- Do you know this person?
- Were you expecting this email?
- Does it read well, or does it appear slightly unprofessional?
Don't act on any requests until you have verified that they are legitimate.
If you have received a request from someone, take steps to verify that it is legitimate.
For example, if your legal representation has emailed you with a change of bank account, even if the email looks like it is from them, still call a known person to verify those details.
If you aren't able to verify that the request is legitimate, or if something doesn't feel quite right, ignore it.
You will never receive urgent, unexpected requests for payment.
If this happens, please contact your legal representation or a Mirvac team member over the phone, or in person.
Mirvac regularly reviews any impersonation attempts and brings down these fraudulent activities.
Mirvac acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia, and we offer our respect to their Elders past and present.
