Please be advised that should you notice an unauthorised debit order on your accounts, you are encouraged to contact us immediately to reverse the transaction. This can be done at a branch or through the call centre on 0860 123 000. There are no fees associated with this reversal as long as the transaction is reversed within 40 days of the transaction taking place. Customers who feel that they have been incorrectly debited or charged for a service that they did not subscribe to should also contact the company directly to stop any future debit orders. Customers are also encouraged to lay a criminal complaint with the South African Police Service. In turn, Standard Bank does report any suspicious transactions under strict regulatory guidelines to the relevant authorities.

Calling the bank on the number to reverse a debit order does seem to be an efficient resolution given the time we are in, holding for longer than 10 minutes on a cellphone during peak time can be costly too.
May I ask standardbank to reiterate a secure message platform as it worked, some of us are more often out of the country the secure message platform really worked fantastically for us. I am pretty convinced your customers at large can benefit from this platform- nobody wants to go to the branch if they can avoid doing so through electronic platforms.
