Freight & Trade Alliance (FTA) has received confirmation of a scam where customers are contacted via email by people pretending to represent the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
Scammers pretending to be from ASIC have been contacting Registry customers asking them to pay fees and give personal information to renew their business or company name.
These emails often have a link that provides an invoice with fake payment details or infects your computer with malware if you click the link.
IF YOU RECEIVE A QUESTIONABLE EMAIL, YOUR BEST PROTECTION IS TO DELETE THE EMAIL IMMEDIATELY.
You can find further information on the ASIC website.
