An NAB banker prevented a homebuyer from transferring $6 million to a scam after noticing a concerning “red flag.”

A NAB bank teller has provided a customer with ample reason to be grateful.

A woman in her 50s from New South Wales visited a bank branch in Erina on the Central Coast to transfer $6 million to a conveyancer upon receiving an invoice for property acquisition. However, the invoice turned out to be fraudulent, not originating from the conveyancer.

Scammers likely hacked the conveyancer’s email address, utilizing a convincing invoice to persuade the woman to transfer the substantial sum.

NAB customer advisor Nikki Alvaro engaged in conversation with the customer regarding the $6 million transfer, ensuring all details were correct before proceeding.

Despite the apparent legitimacy of the email, the NAB employee detected a red flag.
