Don't get burnt by scammers trying to steal your hard-earned cash! Fake electricity bills are being emailed in an attempt to spread ransomware, with reports that a recent scam claims to be from energy provider AGL. The fake email looks like a standard bill, but directs the email recipient to click on a link which takes them to a website designed to install ransomware on the victim's computer. AGL will never send an email asking for personal banking or financial details. If you receive this email DELETE IMMEDIATELY. Source
COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.
Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a shame to see your comment deleted)
Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
