Telstra Bill Scam – watch out

There’s a new, very well constructed, scam email making the rounds – this time it’s a Telstra look-alike bill.

The well-formatted email will look familiar to existing Telstra customers and asks users to click through to an attached bill. Although there are no attachments: just a link is provided.

The cyber criminals can then view and save user and payment credentials for further illegal activity.

All fake bills reported have shown the same account number.
