Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way


An Aussie woman lost almost $40,000 after a scammer accessed her online banking details from an old phone she dropped off at an e-waste program. 

Harmony Antoinette was relaxing in her Melbourne home when she received the strange notification which prompted her to enter a code. 

However, within an hour she lost almost $40,000 after the hacker made several online purchases using her wallet ID. 

Ms Antoinette, who worked in the financial services for 14 years, was extremely careful not to open phishing texts or respond to scammers.

She believes her details were taken from an old phone after she dropped it off at an e-waste program in Melbourne. 

Harmony Antoinette received a ‘strange’ notification on her phone and within an hour had $40,000 stolen from her account

Ms Antoinette immediately called Commonwealth Bank to notify them of the scam and to have her account blocked to prevent any unwanted transactions. 

The Commbank staff member reassured Ms Antoinette that her banking would be reset and the transactions could be reversed. 

‘The lady I spoke to was lovely and reassuring and told me I had called in time and that the transactions could be reversed because I’d called so quickly, and she was very apologetic,’ Ms Antoinette told 7News. 

‘Then while I was on my way to work I got another notification that a transaction had been initiated by my wallet ID.’ 

However, Ms Antoinette then started receiving email notifications from retailers regarding online purchases including  more than $2,000 on Catch.com.au and an email from JB Hi-Fi about a purchase they rejected because of suspected fraud. 

Ms Antoinette then called CBA’s fraud department which told her that they believed she made the purchases.
