Encrypted PDF email

Message 1 of 3 467 Views

Hi,

i received an email purporting to be from BankWest telling me to "review my accounts-urgent action required". The email had an encrypted PDF attached that prompted me to enter my DOB when I tried to open it.

 

On the face of it, this stinks like a scam; I wanted to check if this email is legitimate or not..

 

thanks,

Hi @robo_mf, thanks for bringing this to our attention. It's always best to check if  you receive a suspicious email.

As I can't see the email to confirm if it's legitimate, it's best to forward it to abuse@security.bankwest.com.au .

 

You can also read more about email security and what to do if your receive these emails here.
