Disruptions to these processes may result in Mobile Banking services being unavailable from time to time.

Special risks relating to Mobile Banking

  • While Mobile Banking allows you to transact simply using your phones or devices and codes, because of that simplicity, it also poses special risks.
  • If someone else has your codes, they can transact on your Account as if they were you. You may be liable for such transactions.
  • You should take special care to keep your codes secret and not disclose them to any third party including family, friends, and institutions.

  • You should also be careful about using services, which offer to interface with Mobile Banking or other means of electronic devices on your behalf. For example, you may be led to believe that you are inputting your card number, date of expiry card, phone number and password into Mobile Banking, while in fact you are disclosing your codes to a third party hosting a hoax website or scamming application.

We continually look at ways to minimize any unauthorized transactions on your Account. We may use various techniques from time to time, including contacting you after an unusual transaction or series of transactions to confirm that you did in fact authorized the transaction(s).
