Beware of fake Medicare email

Post by Perrorist » 04 Jul 2018, 15:12

"Scammers have set up a clone of the myGov website to trick you into sharing your login and bank account details.

The scam starts with a phishing email that looks like it is from Medicare, asking you to update your Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) details, so you can start receiving payments for Medicare benefits and claims. "

We complain about governments, but the main problem might just be people, who if they can get away with anything, they will.
Sometimes I despair of homo sapiens. Sometimes I think they're marvellous.
Such a difference amongst them, and who knows what's the majority?
