[SCAM WARNING] Don’t make 'instant' EFT payments when shopping online
Do not make “instant” electronic funds transfer (EFT) payments when shopping online.
On Thursday, the South African Reserve Bank (Sarb) and the Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) warned consumers against making instant EFT payments.
Instant EFT payments use “screen scraping”, giving a third-party access to bank account information, which is against banks’ terms and conditions.
