Watch out for scams impersonating Dropbox, MailChimp, The ATO and MYOB
Beware of opening phony emails impersonating Dropbox, MailChimp, the ATO and MYOB. All emails are well-designed impersonating prominent Australian brands with malicious content.
Scammers regularly target Dropbox due due to the significant number of users and its global use. The link directs to a fake Office 365 site requesting asking for personal details and redirecting to a malicious PDF file.
3. ATO Scam
The ATO-branded email is well-timed with the end of FY17, given the impending October 31 deadline. The send has forged domain ato.com, a legitimate domain based in Chicago.
Clicking the link directs you to a well-designed phony MyGov website prompting you to provide your credit card, driver’s license, email and password.
