Thanks Josh for this

It's ridiculous just how much of these scams are going around!

Just last week I was almost victim of the tax department scam ringing me from a 1300 number which looks similar to a government number... My painting buddy actual fell for this scam and handed over his tax file number over the phone. It just never ends

You can never be too careful. You have to question absolutely everything.

Thanks for letting us know about this Josh!

Many thanks for the heads up, cheers, Tosh :)

Sure appreciate the info, Josh!

Interesting post, Josh. Any email that has a link to download is cause for suspicion from an unknown sender. Thanks for sharing this.

It's amazing how many kinds of scams are out there. If these people would put as much effort into doing something legit as they do their scams, they probably could make some good money.

'Honest' money. Scammers make too much money scamming people so it's worth the risk for them I guess. :(

Thanks so much for sharing:)

Thanks Josh .. these things are just annoying! Cheers, William.

Thank you for the information Josh.
Nice to know.

Too many Scams online! By targeting domain owners they hope to catch new website builders who are unaware. Lets hope no one from WA clicks on the links and follows though.
