The Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations (AFUO) calls on members of the Ukrainian community and the broader Australian community to strongly protest the Westpac advertisement in today’s Melbourne Herald Sun & Sydney Daily Telegraph promoting their Westpac Fraud Money Back Guarantee Policy and putting the focus on UKRAINE.
Issues of fraud and misuse of credit cards is an international phenomenon. There is no need to isolate Ukraine.
If it was intended as a marketing ploy – it is in bad taste and derogatory.
The AFUO calls on Westpac to apologise and undertake this advertisement will be removed from any further campaign.
The AFUO suggests members who bank with Westpac to demand action and an apology. Those who don’t bank with Westpac contact the back and protest also.
