Just received multiple emails and SMSs from Macquarie Bank claiming card applications had been approved. These referred to two separate applications 8 & 18months old.
Checked with Macquarie via Twitter and their reply was “a communications error that they were looking into immediately”
So , PROBABLY, nothing to worry about but:
(i) look out for an update email confirming issue
(ii) keep an eye on your physical mail, in case a card turns up (not likely)
(iii) check your account if you still have one. Do not click through from link in the email rather type the address yourself
If in doubt call Macquarie directly
