Scam alert

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has issued many press releases in relation to the new Coronavirus, aka COVID-19, in recent weeks, but one carries a very different message.

Sadly, scammers are at it again, this time using the virus as a reason to send phishing emails. WHO warns that the emails appear to be from WHO, and will ask you to:

• Give sensitive information, such as usernames or passwords
• Click a malicious link
• Open a malicious attachment

If there is anything other than ‘who.int’ after the ‘@’ symbol in the email address, the email is not from WHO.

If you receive a scam email: 

As ever, if you receive an email from a sender you don’t recognise:

• Don’t click on any links or open any attachments and permanently delete the email
• WHO have requested scam emails purporting to be from them are reported here https://www.who.int/about/report_scam/en/
• Any other scam should be reported to the ACCC here https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/report-a-scam
• If you’re keen to know more about new Coronavirus, visit www.who.int or https://www.health.gov.au/healt…/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov
