ABN email scam circulating

News >>

 

A number of fraudulent emails have been circulating recently targeted directly at members of the Australian public and those with businesses. The emails are purporting to be sent by the Australian Taxation Office, attempt to trick users into clicking links contained in the body of the email by claiming that there have been changes made regarding either the use of an ABN or changes regarding the submission of tax lodgements.

While the links appear to be to the Australian Business Register website, if the user hovers the mouse cursor over the link, the link actually displays a completely different destination website. If a user clicks on the links contained within the emails they are taken to a malicious website which will infect their computer with malicious software, also known as malware.

Malware will potentially perform harmful activities such as stealing passwords or other sensitive information and relay the stolen information to criminals, or even damage the user’s data and operating system. Visit Stay Smart Onlinefor more information.
