Recieved any phishy emails lately? We’ve noticed an upspike in fake emails pretending to be big IT companies such as Microsoft and Apple. These emails pretend that you need to change your password or enter your bank details or something similar in order to scam your details from you. This can then be used to commit fraud, identity theft and other cybercrimes. According to an ACCC report, $174,913 Australian dollars have been lost this year to phishing attacks.
Above you can see an example of a phishing email with some red-flags highlighted. Make sure to always be suspicious of ANY email you recieve. It is a good idea to always double-check the sender address and read the entire email before clicking any links or attachments. If anything stands out as suspicious then don’t risk it!
Check out The ACCC’s Scamwatch for a better idea on how scams effect everyday Australians.
