Scammers impersonating federal government cyber security officials are attempting to coax individuals into compromising computers and revealing bank information.
The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) said the scammers were calling individuals on the false premise that their “computer has been infected or hacked” in a bid to “coax individuals into actions that could compromise computers or reveal bank information”.
ACSC states “The Australian Cyber Security Centre will never contact you by phone to request access to your computer, ask you to install software, transfer money or request financial information.”
