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.

The emails contain a link that will either provide an invoice with fake payment details, or try to infect your computer with malware.

These emails are examples of Phishing and Pharming scams.

Phishing scams try to trick you into giving out personal information such as your banking details, passwords and credit card numbers.

Pharming scams often redirect you to a fake version of legitimate websites. This is done by infecting your computer with malware, which triggers a redirect to the fake site.

To assist their customers, ASIC have set up a dedicated webpage with information to help you identify suspicious emails as well as tips for protecting yourself from email scams. If you’re unsure if an email is from ASIC, you can also forward it to them for verification. The email address is included on their webpage.
