Another MyGov scam

The lesson, of course, is never click on a link in an SMS or email even if a friend sent it.

Received this one today:

Give away is the email address and it went to a business email address which isn’t linked to the ATO/MyGov.

The link goes to the URL on jeremyknox a UK website.


myGov never actually includes a link in any emails - although the ATO has not yet heard of best practice and provides a heap.

Even when advising that I had changed my authentication method, myGov gave me a number to call. No links.


I’ve had this one a couple of times lately, love the note at the end :rofl:
