Security and Fraud Awareness
  • Great Southern Bank has partnered with Western Union Business Solutions not only because they offer competitive exchange rates, but also because of their dedication to fighting fraud on a global scale.
  • The best defence against fraud is to educate yourself and use good judgement when sending or receiving money overseas.
  • Complete the relevant information and submit.
  • Scammers are extremely convincing. So always play it safe. Never send money to people or businesses you’ve never actually met in person or cannot independently confirm their authenticity. If unsure, CHECK. A good place to start is www.scamwatch.gov.au or #befraudsmart
What fees apply?
  • Overseas payments sent via Great Southern Bank Online Banking are fee free
  • If you prefer not to send payments via online banking, or for payments above the online banking limits, you can complete the “request for international telegraphic transfer” form. A fee is charged when the payment is processed by Great Southern Bank. Refer to the Schedule of Fees for details.
