We would like to remind members to be on the lookout for suspicious messages and emails to avoid being victims of cybercrime. This includes spam emails as well as phishing, which are emails designed with the intent to trick you into providing personal information such as credit card or contact details. Please be vigilant and be on the look out for misspelt sender addresses, generic greetings and signoffs, poor grammar and spelling and suspicious links and fake websites. If you think you have received a spam or phishing email or SMS text message, it is important not to open any links or attachments and do not respond. If you do receive what appears to be a spam or phishing email from CMCA, please report this to NHQ on 02 4978 8788 and if possible, forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Scam emails can also be reported to Scamwatch HERE. Whilst messages may appear to be from CMCA, via email and SMS text message, cyber criminals may be looking to obtain credentials or personal information, so to assist in spotting phishing messages, be on the alert for red flags. Please remember, CMCA will never make demands in any correspondence and your membership will not be terminated if you do not reply. For more information on what to look out for and how to avoid being a victim of cybercrime, see the ACCC website HERE.
