Bogus Telstra Security Email

I'm not entirely sure where to post this.  I just received this email about an hour ago, and it looks pretty scammy to me.

 

 

This is clearly BS, as I'm still able to both send and receive emails.

 

Just a heads up

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Yes, seen that before and it is bogus..  that is NOT how Telstra do things..

 

You can report it as spam email so that Telstra might do something about it, or identify it as spam/junk in your your account..

You can tell Telstra about the scam by submitting a Report Misuse of Service form and include as much detail as you can. The Cyber Security team will investigate the report and may be in touch if they have additional questions.

Re: Bogus Telstra Security Email

The sender's email address is a pretty clear indication that it is a scam too.

 

Plus it's one of the most amateurish scam attempts that I've seen in a long time.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
