There is a new email scam doing the rounds.
It targets ASIC customers asking them to pay fees and give personal information to renew their business or company names.
Here is an example of a scam email from 23 August 2017:
If OBT acts as your ASIC Agent, all of your ASIC communication will come via our office, and we will forward to you any instructions regarding the communication.
Other warning signs the email is not from ASIC
The email is probably a scam if it asks you:
- to make a payment over the phone
- make a payment to receive a refund, or
- asks for your credit card or bank details directly by email or phone
