I'm also getting St George, Netbank, Paypal and a new one, 
Mastercard. BTW, I'm not a customer of any of them. So the story has 
it wrong on that count.

Interesting that they are using phone call phishing now, too, and the 
mention of 'do not call the number' as a new piece of advice that is needed.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
