06/05/2015: New traffic infringements scam

We are aware of a new campaign of ransomware scam emails supposedly from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) seeking payment of traffic infringement notices.

These scam emails are similar to those we have seen previously claiming to be from SDRO, OSR, ATO, Australia Post and other organisations.

They are designed to encrypt your files and extort payment for their release.

Please remain vigilant and do not open attachments or click on links in e-mails that appear suspicious.

More information on scams can be found on Scamwatch. You can help us by reporting any scams to the ACCC via Scamwatch on 1300 795 995.
