BEWARE: ASIC Renewal SCAM Email Circulating

As of today (20.12.16) we can confirm that there is a nasty email circulating around which is a SCAM and may contain viruses.

The email says it is from ASIC Messaging Service <ASIC.Transaction.No-reply@asic.gov.au>  with the Subject: Renewal.

If you receive an email like this, DO NOT OPEN IT. Get in contact with your accountant or ASIC directly ASAP.

We have spoken to ASIC, who can confirm that it is a scam – and a really good one at that.

We have had two clients this morning who have received the email (screenshot below). The email looks very convincing, so please be wary of any correspondence addressed from ASIC. Do not open any attachments or zipped files.
