Alert: Fake Telstra Billing Scam Exposes Victims To Malware

People are warned to beware of a new email scam doing the rounds.

NSW Police have retweeted a warning about a Telstra Bill scam.

The email carries the Telstra logo, and advises the customer that there is a supposed 'bill' to be paid.

Users are then prompted to click a link to download the bill, however this is actually a malicious link.

The best way to avoid being affected by scam emails is to look closely at the sender information before following any instructions in the email.

While on first glance this email may look official, the sender is 'Online Service Team' but the email address does not bear appropriate accreditation, such as being from a Telstra domain.
