Security alerts

When ASB becomes a phishing campaign target, it means scam emails pretending to come from us have been sent to a large number of people, including ASB customers. These emails are not from ASB, or in any way authorised by us.

If you think you’ve been targeted by an online or phone scam, please call us on 0800 327 863. We take security seriously and will do everything we can to help.

No company in the ASB Group will ever ask you by email for your secure banking information. That includes account or credit card numbers, passwords, PIN numbers or Netcode details.

Phishing emails often give you a link that directs you to an online banking log in page. While ASB might advise logging in to an account to complete an action, we will never give you a direct link to the log in page. Instead, we'll encourage you to type www.asb.co.nz directly into your browser and log in from there. To make our page easily and quickly accessilble, it's good practice to save it as a bookmark.

If you have received a suspicious email, please forward it to our dedicated email scam team on phishing@asb.co.nz.

If you've already clicked a link in a suspicious email, or if in doubt, please call us on 0800 327 863 and we will immediately reset your internet banking password. You can also reset it yourself through FastNet internet banking or the mobile app.

We're committed to keeping you up-to-date with security threats facing online financial services. Find out more about the precautions we take, as well as tips for how you as a customer can protect yourself online.
