In recent days both auDA and auDA accredited registrars have issued warnings about a scam targeting .au registrants.
A copy of auDA’s advice is as follows:
A reminder that .au domain name registrants are being targeted by phishing emails from people posing as auDA, requesting documents or verification of contact information.
If you receive an email requesting this information, do not reply to it or click any links in it.
auDA will only request this kind of material via registrars.
If you have provided your personal details in response to this email, you will need to make a report to your State or Territory police force, and to the Australian Cyber Security Centre via cyber.gov.au/report.
If you receive emails of this nature, please notify ACCC’s Scamwatch.
