I received a very bland looking email from hidden advising
"Your email account is currently undergoing an annual upgrade To avoid account shut down Please verify your email below to complete this upgrade"
Is this legit and I need to click the link?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Don't click the link, its a dodgy email. You should forward the email to [ abuse @ optusnet.com.au ].
What is the domain name in that link?
The address was noreply @ optusnet.com.au
That's the sender link and can be faked easily. I was referring to the link that they want you to click on.
Hi there, @BigAlB. Thanks for getting in touch and bringing this to our attention.
This does sound like a phishing email as we wouldn't ask you to verify your details via an email. We recommend reporting the email as scam/phishing and not clicking any links nor provide any personal information.
To report the email to our Network Security team so they can work to stopping these emails from these senders, you can see our guide on Reporting hoaxes, phishing or scams.
Thanks for being cautious!
