Please read these Conditions of Use. They apply to:
- all transactions initiated by you through an Electronic Banking Terminal (which in these Conditions of Use refers to eftpos Devices and ATMs) by the combined use of your Visa Card and a Personal Identification Number (PIN) or signature; and
- all other transactions (including telephone transactions, internet transactions and, if applicable, Visa payWave transactions) effected with the use of your Visa Card or Visa Card Number.
Your Visa Card (and anyreplacement or additional cards) is linked to your mortgage loan account (Linked Account). These conditions of use should be read in conjunction with the terms and conditions that relate to your mortgage loan account including those terms relating to electronic access to your Linked Account.
On activating or first using your Visa Card (whichever is earlier), you are agreeing to abide by these Conditions of Use. If activation is required, it may still be possible for your Visa Card to be used prior to activation. For example, this may occur when your Visa Card is used to purchase goods or services for an amount which is below the approved Floor Limit. The Available Funds in your Linked Account will be reduced by the amount of any transaction that is made in these circumstances.
These Conditions of Use:
- are issued to you by Indue Limited ABN 97 087 822 464 (“Indue”) and Columbus Capital Pty Ltd ABN 51 119 531 252 trading as Origin Mortgage Management Services (“OMMS”); and
- apply to you and any Additional Cardholder.
- Your Visa Card is issued to you by Indue at the request of OMMS. Indue is a member of Visa and is responsible for effecting settlement of all transactions that arise as a result of the use of your Visa Card or Visa Card Number. OMMS manages (on behalf of the Lender) your Linked Account to which you may obtain access by use of your Visa Card.
If these Conditions of Use are not clear to you, contact Indue or OMMS BEFORE using your Visa Card or alternatively seek independent advice from your accountant or lawyer.
Information on the current fees and charges that apply in relation to the use of your Visa Card are available in the Schedule of Fees and Charges at the end of these Conditions of Use.
Words that are capitalised are defined in section 28 below.

If you fail to properly safeguard your Visa Card or PIN, you may increase your liability for unauthorised use (refer to section 15 below for a list of circumstances where you may be held liable for an unauthorised transaction). It is therefore strongly recommended that you:
- sign your Visa Card immediately when you receive it;
- memorise your PIN and never store it with or near your Visa Card;
- never write your PIN on your Visa Card;
- never lend your Visa Card to anyone;
- never tell anyone your PIN or let anyone see it, including any family member or friend;
- don’t choose a PIN that is easily identified with you, e.g. your birth date, an alphabetical code which is a recognisable part of your name or your car registration;
- don’t choose a PIN that is merely a group of repeated numbers;
- try to prevent anyone else seeing you enter your PIN into an ATM or eftpos Device ( i.e. an “Electronic Banking Terminal“);
- never leave your Visa Card unattended, e.g. in your car or at work;
- immediately report the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your Visa Card to the VISA CARD 24hr EMERGENCY HOTLINE on Free Call – 1800 621 199;
- keep a record of the VISA CARD 24hr EMERGENCY HOTLINE telephone number with your usual list of emergency telephone numbers;
- examine your account statement as soon as you receive it to identify and report, as soon as possible, any instances of unauthorised use; and
- for security reasons, on the expiry date, destroy your Visa Card by cutting it diagonally in half (including cutting in half any chip on your Visa Card).
| top |
These Conditions of Use apply to:
- your use of your Visa Card when used in conjunction with a PIN, in an Electronic Banking Terminal;
- use of your Visa Card to purchase goods or services where a PIN is not required; and
- use of your Visa Card or Visa Card Number in a way acceptable to Indue and OMMS (for example, to make a transaction over the telephone or internet).
At your request, OMMS may attach other services to the Visa Card. Any additional services that you request to be attached to your Visa Card will be advised to you in writing.
You will be required to activate your Visa Card before being able to use your Visa Card. To activate your Visa Card, please contact OMMS on 1300 767 063 and follow the prompts.
If you do not agree with the terms of these Conditions of Use, do not Activate your Visa Card.
Instead, return all Visa Cards to OMMS (cut in half for your protection, including cutting in half any chip on your Visa Card).

The provisions of industry codes of practice may apply to the use of your Visa Card if OMMS has agreed to be bound by an industry code of practice.
If you would like to know which industry codes of practice apply to the use of your Visa Card or you would like to obtain a copy of any relevant code, you should contact OMMS.
You agree to sign your Visa Card as soon as you receive it and before using it, as a means of preventing unauthorised use.

If you believe your Visa Card or PIN record has been lost or stolen, or your PIN has become known to someone else, you should IMMEDIATELY report this by contacting:
DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS
Origin Mortgage Management Services Local call – 1300 767 063
OUTSIDE NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS
Visa CARD 24hr EMERGENCY HOTLINE
Free Call – 1800 621 199
If the loss, theft or misuse occurs OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA you must notify a financial institution displaying the Visa logo and you must also then confirm the loss, theft or misuse of your Visa Card with OMMS by telephone or priority paid mail as soon as possible.
- If you contact the Visa Card 24hr Emergency Hotline:
you will be given a reference number which you should retain as evidence of the date and time of your report; and
- you should advise OMMS, as soon as you can, that you have made a report to the Visa Card 24hr Emergency Hotline.
If for any reason any of the above methods of notification is unavailable, any losses occurring due to your inability to notify OMMS using one of the above methods will be the liability of Indue and OMMS. To avoid further losses you are required to continue to try to provide notification by using one of the methods referred to above. Providing you continue to try and use reasonable endeavours having regard to your own individual circumstances to notify OMMS or the Visa Card 24hr Emergency Hotline, Indue and OMMS will continue to be liable for any loss occurring as a result of any unauthorised use of your Visa Card.
If your Visa Card is reported as lost or stolen, Indue will arrange for OMMS to issue to you a replacement Visa Card. You must give OMMS a reasonable time to arrange cancellation and the issue of a replacement Visa Card.
As your Lender has appointed OMMS as manager to manage your Linked Account, and arranged for OMMS to issue the Visa Card, you should not contact the Lender regarding any aspect of your Linked Account or the Visa Card. Your Lender accepts no responsibility whatever in relation to the Linked Account or the Visa Card.
| top |
Your Visa Card is generally accepted anywhere the Visa logo is displayed in Australia or overseas. OMMS, on behalf of Indue, will advise you:
- what transactions your Visa Card will enable you to perform at an Electronic Banking Terminal;
- which Electronic Banking Terminal networks you may use; and
- what mail, internet or telephone transactions you may carry out with your Visa Card by quoting your Visa Card Number.
You accept that:
- not all Electronic Banking Terminals from which cash can be withdrawn will always contain cash;
- any cash dispensed at any Electronic Banking Terminal is at risk once it becomes visible or available for you to collect.
Any transaction made by you at an Electronic Banking Terminal cannot be cancelled, altered or changed by you.
You may only use your Visa Card to perform transactions on your Linked Account in accordance with these Conditions of Use.
In the first instance, your Linked Account will be debited (which will reduce the Available Funds of your Linked Account) with the value of all transactions carried out:
- by the use of your Visa Card at an Electronic Banking Terminal;
- by the use of your Visa Card Number (for example, using your Visa Card Number to conduct a telephone or internet transaction); or
- when your Visa Card is presented to a merchant (or someone else on behalf of a merchant) in a way acceptable to Indue and OMMS.
If the Linked Account is in the name of more than one person (referred to as a joint account), then you and the joint account holder will be jointly and severally liable (in the first instance) for all transactions carried out by using yours or the joint account holder’s Visa Card or Visa Card Number. This means that:
• your joint account holder will be liable to Indue, OMMS and the Lender (in the first instance) for all transactions that are carried out by use of your Visa Card or Visa Card Number; and
• if applicable, you will be liable to Indue, OMMS and the Lender (in the first instance) for all transactions that are carried out by use of the joint account holder’s Visa Card or Visa Card Number.
To facilitate the processing of transaction information, your Visa Card details and transaction details may be processed by Visa in countries other than Australia. By using your Visa Card, you agree that information regarding any transactions may be processed outside of Australia.
If your Visa Card is payWave enabled, then it may be possible for your Visa Card to be used to pay for transactions that are under $100.00 by using the Visa payWave functionality at Visa payWave participating merchants. Before authorising a Visa payWave transaction by waving your Visa Card over the merchant’s enabled Visa payWave terminal, you must check that the correct amount is displayed on the Visa payWave terminal. If your transaction exceeds $100.00, you will be required to either sign or enter your PIN.
Your Visa Card will be registered with Verified by Visa. Verified by Visa is a program designed to authenticate online transactions. This means that when you use your Visa Card online to make a purchase at a Verified by Visa Participating Merchant, your identity may need to be validated if the relevant transaction is deemed to be high risk. In certain circumstances, if your transaction is deemed to be very high risk, the transaction will be declined. If you are unable to validate your identity, your Visa Card may be suspended. For assistance in these circumstances or to learn how your Visa Card may be unsuspended, please contact OMMS during its normal business hours (refer to OMMS’s website at www.originmms.com.au for details of OMMS’s normal business hours).
| top |
You should always check with the relevant merchant that it will accept your Visa Card before purchasing any goods or services. Neither Indue, OMMS nor the Lender warrants or accept any responsibility for:
- any Electronic Banking Terminal refusing to accept your Visa Card; or
- any goods or services purchased with your Visa Card.
You must not use your Visa Card for any unlawful purpose, including the purchase of goods or services prohibited by the laws of Australia and/or the laws of the location where the Visa Card is used or where the goods or services are provided. Should your Visa Card be used for unlawful purposes, you may be restricted from accessing any Available Funds from your Linked Account.
It is an offence under Australian law to conduct transactions on an account which may lead to an actual or attempted evasion of a taxation law, or an offence under any other Commonwealth or Territory law. Where Indue or OMMS has reasonable grounds to suspect that such transaction(s) have occurred on your Linked Account, Indue or OMMS (as the case may be) is obliged to report such suspicion to the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre.
Fraudulent transactions can arise from use of your Visa Card or Visa Card Number. Where you advise OMMS or Indue that a transaction that has been debited to your Linked Account is fraudulent, unauthorised or disputed, OMMS or Indue (as the case may be) will investigate and review that transaction in accordance with section 17 of these Conditions of Use.
Neither Indue, OMMS nor the Lender are responsible in the event that you have a dispute regarding the goods or services purchased using your Visa Card. In the first instance, you should contact the merchant directly. If you cannot resolve the dispute with the merchant, OMMS and Indue have the ability in certain circumstances to investigate disputed transactions on your behalf (refer to section 17 below for a list of circumstances when OMMS and Indue can investigate disputed transactions) and attempt to obtain a refund for you.
| top |
All transactions conducted overseas will be converted into Australian dollars. Transactions will either be converted directly into Australian dollars or will be first converted from the currency in which the transaction was made into US dollars and then converted to Australian dollars by Visa. The conversion rate used is either:
- a rate selected by Visa from a range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable processing date, which may vary from the rate Visa receives; or
- the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable processing date.
A currency conversion fee will be payable by you when you make a transaction on your Visa Card in a currency other than Australian dollars, or you make a transaction on your Visa Card in any currency (including AUD) that is processed by a card scheme or financial institution or billed by the merchant outside of Australia. It may not always be clear, particularly when purchasing online, that the merchant, financial institution or card scheme processing is located outside of Australia.
Note: Refunds in currencies other than Australian
dollars are converted to Australian dollars as at the date they are processed by Visa using exchange rates determined by them. This may lead to the refund being converted using an exchange rate different from the one used to convert the original purchase. The converted Australian dollar amount appears on the Visa Card transaction history as the transaction amount.
The currency conversion fee charged is a percentage of the value of each overseas transaction effected by you. This fee will be
debited to your Linked Account and will appear on your account statement. Please refer to your Schedule of Fees and Charges at the end of these Conditions of Use for the applicable amount of the currency conversion fee that applies as at the date you receive these Conditions of Use.
The currency conversion fee may change. Any change to this fee will be notified to you in accordance with section 22, unless the change reduces the amount of the fee.
You agree that you will NOT use your Visa Card to:
- overdraw the Available Funds in your Linked Account; or
- exceed the unused portion of any credit limit provided to you under any pre-arranged credit facility with OMMS and/or the Lender.
OMMS, as the manager of the Linked Account (on behalf of Indue as the Visa Card issuer):
- may set temporary or permanent limits on the minimum andmaximum amounts that you may withdraw from your Linked Account on any one day through the Electronic Banking Terminal; and
- will advise you of any daily transaction limits that apply at the time of your application of your Visa Card.
Where a temporary minimum or maximum limit is imposed, OMMS will use reasonable endeavours to notify you that it has imposed a temporary transaction limit. A temporary maximum transaction limit will usually be imposed in circumstances where transactions appear to be suspicious or fraudulent. Where a newpermanent minimum or maximum transaction limit is imposed, OMMS will inform you of this change in accordance with the requirements set out in section 22 of these Conditions of Use.
Merchants offering eftpos facilities have the right to impose conditions on the use of such facilities. This can include imposing their own transaction limits or restrictions on the amount of cash or value that you may obtain using your Visa Card.
| top |
Certain transactions that you make using your Visa Card may need to be authorised by OMMS and Indue before they can proceed. In these circumstances, prior to the transaction being completed, the relevant merchant’s financial institution will obtain authorisation from OMMS and Indue for the transaction to be processed. Once authorisation is obtained, it will reduce the amount of Available Funds in your Linked Account. If circumstances occur where authorisation is obtained by OMMS and Indue but the relevant transaction is not completed, your Available Funds in your Linked Account may be reduced for a period of time.
Transactions will not necessarily be processed to your Linked Account on the same day they occur. The date that you conduct the transaction is referred to as the transaction date. Some transactions will be processed after the transaction date. This is usually due to the relevant merchant’s financial institution not processing the relevant transaction on the transaction date.
OMMS and Indue have the right to refuse authorisation for you to effect a transaction if:
- OMMS or Indue has restricted access to your Linked Account in accordance with section 13 of these Conditions of Use;
- in accordance with section 0 of these Conditions of Use, OMMS or Indue believes on reasonable grounds that the transaction is fraudulent or suspicious; or
- the transaction will result in you overdrawing the Available Funds in your Linked Account.
| top |
Proceeds of cheques will not be available for you to draw against until cleared.
You may apply to OMMS to request that an additional Visa Card be given to your nominee (referred to as an Additional Cardholder). OMMS is not obliged to grant any additional Visa Cards. OMMS and Indue are required to comply with all laws governing the issuing of debit cards (including identification and verification of any additional cardholders in accordance with the AML Legislation).
When an additional Visa Card is issued at your request:
- you agree that you will provide the Additional Cardholder with a copy of these Conditions of Use and any updates made to these Conditions of Use from time to time that are communicated to you;
- you will be liable (in the first instance) for all transactions carried out by use of the additional Visa Card. Fraudulent or unauthorised transactions can occur on debit cards. Where you (or your Additional Cardholder) advise OMMS or Indue that a transaction that has occurred on your Visa Card or your Additional Cardholder’s Visa Card is fraudulent, unauthorised or disputed, OMMS or Indue (as the case may be) will investigate and review that transaction in accordance with section 17 below;
- you authorise OMMS and Indue to give to any Additional Cardholderinformation about your accounts for the purposes of their use of the additional Visa Card. You also authorise OMMS and Indue to act on the instructions of the Additional Cardholder in relation to their use of their additional Visa Card, except to the extent that any such instructions relate to the termination of your accounts or the replacement of an additional Visa Card following cancellation of that Visa Card by you; and
- you can cancel the additional Visa Card at any time by cutting it in half diagonally (including cutting in half any chip) and either returning the pieces to OMMS and requesting the additional Visa Card be cancelled or by informing OMMS that you have destroyed the additional Visa Card and disposed of the pieces securely. You must write to OMMS confirming cancellation of the additional Visa Card. If you cannot destroy the additional Visa Card you should contact OMMS by telephone and request that OMMS place a “stop” on your Linked Account.
If an Additional Cardholder does not comply with these Conditions of Use then you will be in breach of these Conditions of Use (refer to section 13 below).
Indue will arrange for OMMS to forward to you and your Additional Cardholder a replacement Visa Card before the expiry date of your current Visa Card or additional Visa Card, provided that you are not otherwise in default under these Conditions of Use.
If you do not require a replacement Visa Card, either for yourself or your Additional Cardholder, you must notify OMMS before the expiration date of your current Visa Card. You must give OMMS a reasonable time to arrange cancellation of the issue of a replacement Visa Card.
Indue may arrange for OMMS to issue a new Visa Card to you or your Additional Cardholder at any time. All reissued cards are subject to these Conditions of Use. Indue will typically do this in circumstances where it or OMMS considers that the security of your Visa Card or PIN may have been compromised or where Indue is required to issue new cards to all its cardholders as a result of any payment scheme rule changes. In these
circumstances, you will not be charged any replacement card fee.
| top |
The Visa Card always remains the property of Indue.
Indue or OMMS (on behalf of Indue as the Visa Card issuer) may cancel your Visa Card and demand the return of the Visa Card issued to you and your Additional Cardholder at any time without prior notice:
- for security reasons where your Visa Card has been or is reasonably suspected to have been compromised and such compromise has been caused directly by you, an Additional Cardholder or any other third party as a result of your conduct;
- the Linked Account has been overdrawn, or you have exceeded the Available Limit;
- if you breach these Conditions of Use or the terms and conditions of the Linked Account and you fail to remedy that default within 14 days after receiving a written notice from OMMS or Indue requesting you to remedy the default;
- if your Linked Account is closed or is inactive;
- if, without the agreement of OMMS, you alter the authorities governing the use of your Linked Account; or
- Indue or OMMS believe that the use of the Visa Card may cause loss to the account holder, Indue, OMMS or the Lender.
Indue or OMMS (on behalf of Indue as the Visa Card issuer) may also capture your Visa Card at any Electronic Banking Terminal.
While in these circumstances you may not be notified prior to the cancellation of your Visa Card, either Indue or OMMS will use reasonable
endeavours to notify you following cancellation of your Visa Card.
Indue or OMMS may also cancel your Visa Card and demand the return of the Visa Card issued to you and your Additional Cardholder at any time on giving you not less than one months’ written notice.
You may cancel your Visa Card or your Additional Cardholder’s Visa Card at any time by giving OMMS written notice. In these circumstances you must either return all Visa Cards to OMMS (cut in half for your protection, including cutting in half any chip on your Visa Card) or confirm by telephone that all Visa Cards have been destroyed and that you have disposed of the pieces securely. You must then write to OMMS to confirm cancellation of your Visa Cards.
You and/or any Additional Cardholders may be restricted or prevented from accessing any available funds from your Linked Account byusing a Visa Card in circumstances where:
- there is a default of these Conditions of Use; and
- Indue or OMMS has notified you of this default and advised you that restrictions will be placed on access to your Linked Account through use of your Visa Card if you do not rectify the relevant default in accordance with the timeframes set out in the notice that has been provided to you.
Indue or OMMS, where possible, will provide you with at least seven (7) days notice of its intention to restrict the ability for you to access any available funds from your Linked Account by using your Visa Card.
| top |
You must not use your Visa Card or allow your Additional Cardholder to use his or her additional Visa Card:
- after it has been cancelled or restricted; or
- after the expiry date shown on the face of the Visa Card.
In some circumstances, your Visa Card may be used for purchases which are below Floor Limits and where no electronic approval is required. If you or an Additional Cardholder uses your Visa Card after it has been cancelled or restricted, you will be liable to Indue, OMMS and the Lender (as the case may be) for the value of any transaction as well as any reasonable costs incurred your Indue, OMMS and/or the Lender (as the case may be) in collecting the amount owing.

- You are not liable for any loss arising from unauthorised use of your Visa Card:
- where the losses are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of:
- Indue or OMMS;
- employees or agents of Indue or OMMS;
- companies involved in networking arrangements; or
- merchants or agents or employees of merchants;
- before you have actually received your Visa Card and PIN andacknow- ledged receipt of your Visa Card and PIN to OMMS;
- subject to section 14, where the losses relate to any component of your Visa Card or PIN being forged, faulty, expired or cancelled;
- where the losses are caused by the same transaction being incorrectly debited more than once to your Linked Account;
- after you have reported it lost or stolen;
- if you did not contribute to any unauthorised use of your Visa Card; or
- if the unauthorised transaction was made using your Visa Card information without use of your actual Visa Card or PIN.
- where the losses are caused by the fraudulent or negligent conduct of:
- For the purpose of section 15(1)(b), there is a presumption that you did not receive your Visa Card unless Indue or OMMS can prove that you received your Visa Card by, for example, obtaining record of you activating your Visa Card.
- For the purpose of section 15(1)(f), OMMS (on behalf of Indue) will undertake an assessment to consider whether you have contributed to any loss caused by unauthorised use of your Visa Card. This assessment will include a review of whether you:
- voluntarily disclosed your PIN to anyone, including a family member or friend;
- voluntarily allowed someone else to observe you entering your PIN into an Electronic Banking Terminal;
- wrote or indicated your PIN on your Visa Card;
- wrote or indicated your PIN (without making any reasonable attempt to disguise the PIN) on any article carried with your Visa Card or likely to be lost or stolen at the same time as your Visa Card;
- allowed anyone else to use your Visa Card;
- unreasonably delayed notification of:
- your Visa Card or PIN record being lost or stolen;
- unauthorised use of your Visa Card; or
- the fact that someone else knows your PIN; or
- in relation to a transaction carried out at an ATM, used an ATM that incorporated reasonable safety standards that mitigated the risk of a card being left in the ATM.
- Where a transaction can be made using your Visa Card but does not require your PIN, you are liable only if you unreasonably delay reporting the loss or theft of your Visa Card.
- If OMMS or Indue can prove on the balance of probability that you have contributed to the unauthorised use of your Visa Card under section 15(3) your liability will be the lesser of:
- the actual loss when less than your Available Funds (including the unused portion of any credit limit provided to you under any pre-arranged credit facility) with OMMS and/or the Lender;
- your Available Funds (including the unused portion of any credit limit provided to you under any pre- arranged credit facility with OMMS and/or the Lender);
- an amount calculated by adding the actual losses incurred for each day, up to the current daily withdrawal limit, on which unauthorised use occurred before you reported the loss, theft or unauthorised use of your Visa Card, up to and including the day you make your report; or
- the amount for which you would be held liable if any industry rules, such as Visa’s scheme rules, applied (if you wish to find out what industry rules apply to transactions made using your Visa Card, please contact OMMS).
- In assessing your liability under section 15(5)(c):
- where your Visa Card has been lost or stolen, the number of days will be calculated by reference to the day when you should reasonably have become aware that it was lost or stolen; and
- the current daily withdrawal limit is the limit applicable at the time of the transaction by reference to the status and/or type of Electronic Banking Terminal at which the transaction occurred.
- Where a PIN was required to perform the unauthorised transaction and it is unclear whether or not you have contributed to any loss caused by the unauthorised use of your Visa Card, your liability will be the lesser of:
- your Available Funds (including the unused portion of any credit limit provided to you under any pre- arranged credit facility by OMMS and/or the Lender);
- the actual loss at the time OMMS is notified of the loss or theft of your Visa Card; or
- the amount for which you would be held liable if any industry rules, such as Visa’s scheme rules, applied (if you wish to find out what industry rules apply to transactions made using your Visa Card, please contact OMMS).
- In assessing your liability under this section 15:
- OMMS (on behalf of Indue) will consider all reasonable evidence including all reasonable explanations for an unauthorised use having occurred;
- the fact that an account is accessed with the correct PIN, while significant, is not of itself conclusive evidence that you have contributed to the loss; and
- the use or security of any information required to perform a transaction that you are not required to keep secret (for example, your Visa Card Number and the expiry date on the front of your Visa Card) is not relevant to your liability.
- Your liability for losses occurring as a result of unauthorised use will be determined under the ePayments Code (as amended, superseded or replaced from time to time by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission). For details about the ePayments Code, visit www.asic.gov.au or contact OMMS. The guidelines set out at the beginning of these Conditions of Use, are the minimum suggested security measures you should take. If you disagree with OMMS’s resolution process, you should contact OMMS and request that OMMS review its decision in accordance with section 17.
| top |
In addition to the limits placed on your liability pursuant to the ePayments Code and described in section 15 above, Visa’s scheme rules provide that Indue and OMMS shall limit your liability to nil
in the following circumstances:
- it is found that you have not contributed to any loss caused by unauthorised use of your Visa Card following the review described in section 15(3); and
- you have provided all reasonably requested documentation to OMMS and Indue, which may include provision of a statutory declaration and police report.
Where this Visa zero liability section applies, OMMS and Indue will endeavour to refund the amount of the unauthorised transaction(s) within five (5) days, subject to:
- you having provided all reasonably requested information to OMMS and Indue;
- you are not otherwise in default or have breached these Conditions of Use; or
- OMMS and Indue not reasonably determining that further investigation is necessary before refunding the amount of the unauthorised transactions based on:
- the conduct of the Linked Account;the nature and circumstances surrounding the unauthorised transaction(s); and
- any delay in notifying OMMS of the unauthorised transaction(s).
Any refund is conditional upon the final outcome of OMMS’s and Indue’s investigation of the matter and may be withdrawn by OMMS or Indue where it considers that this section shall not apply as a result of that investigation. In making any determination in respect of this section, OMMS and Indue will comply with the requirements of section 17 of these Conditions of Use.
| top |
If you believe a transaction is wrong or unauthorised or your account statement contains any instances of unauthorised use or errors, you must immediately notify OMMS or the Visa Card 24 Hour Emergency Hot Line as explained in section
4. As soon possible, you must also provide OMMS the following:
- your name and address, account number and Visa Card Number;
- details of the transaction or the error you consider is wrong or unauthorised;
- a copy of the account statement in which the unauthorised transaction or error first appeared;
- the dollar amount and an explanation as to why you believe it is an unauthorised transaction or an error;
- the names of other users authorised to operate the Linked Account;
- details of whether your Visa Card is signed and PIN is secure; and
- any other details required by OMMS.
If your complaint is immediately settled to your satisfaction or if it is settled to your satisfaction within 5 Business Days of receiving the relevant details from you, OMMS may advise you of the outcome of your complaint by means other than in writing. If you wish, you may request that OMMS provides you with a written response.
However, if OMMS is unable to settle your complaint within 5 Business Days, it will advise you in writing of the procedures for further investigation and resolution and may request further relevant details from you.
Within 21 days of receiving the relevant further details from you, OMMS will:
- advise you in writing of the results of its investigations; or
- advise you in writing that it requires further time (not exceeding a further 24 days) to complete its investigation.
An investigation will continue beyond 45 days only in exceptional circumstances, for example, if there are delays caused by other financial institutions or merchants involved in resolving the complaint or in circumstances where OMMS investigates the relevant transaction under the relevant industry rules that apply (for example, Visa’s scheme rules).
Visa’s scheme rules set out specific circumstances and timeframes in which a member of the scheme (for example, OMMS, on behalf of Indue, or a bank or another financial institution) can claim a refund in connection with a disputed transaction on a cardholder’s behalf. This right is referred to as a “chargeback right”. Accordingly, when OMMS investigates a disputed transaction under Visa’s scheme rules, the timeframes are limited by what is imposed by Visa. The timeframes vary between 75 days and 120 days so it is important that you notify OMMS as soon as you become aware of a disputed transaction.
If it is found that an error was made, it will make the appropriate adjustments to your Linked Account including interest and charges (if any) and will advise you in writing of the amount of the adjustment.
If your complaint or dispute is not satisfactorily resolved by OMMS, you may contact Indue:
Indue Ltd PO Box 523
Toowong QLD 4066
Phone: 1300 671 819 between 7.00am – 7.00pm Monday to Friday, Saturday 8.00am – 7.00pm, closed Sundays and national public holidays.

Scheme. OMMS is a member of the following External Dispute Resolution Scheme:

You may wish to dispute a transaction in circumstances where:
- the transaction is not recognised by you;
- you did not authorise the transaction;
