We understand the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC)’s Scamwatch has received multiple reports of COVID-19 themed scam texts being sent to members of the public.
The text messages appear to come from ‘GOV’ as the sender and they include a link to find out when to ‘get tested in your geographical area’ for COVID-19.
The link in these text messages is not legitimate, and if clicked on, may install malicious software on your device, designed to steal your banking details.
If you receive one of these messages, delete the message and do not click the link. "
