Crypto scams trigger new move from authorities
Commonwealth Bank of Australia has implemented measures to restrict its clients’ capacity to transfer funds to cryptocurrency exchanges as a result of scams associated with crypto.

“With the incidences of scams increasing and in many cases customers suffering significant losses from being scammed, the introduction of 24-hour holds, declines and limits on outbound payments to cryptocurrency exchanges will help reduce both the number of scams and the amount of money lost by customers,” said James Roberts, general manager of group fraud management services at Commonwealth Bank.
