  2. Received the same phishing email today (16/8) – close inspection identifies some significant errors = account number, and using capital ‘O’ instead of zeros. Bloody cheeky!

  3. I have received 5 of these emails and the errors were obvious.
    At present (22/9) I received over 400 emails originating in Italy from “mail administrator” showing that my email to the addressee could not be delivered. Or they come from Mailer Demon (Italy) with the same message. I have absolutely had/have no contact with Italy, but assume my email got onto some sort of list. What I dont understand, that Telstra cannot block the senders. I report them as “spam report” (webmail), but they keep on coming. Of course they go in my trash bin automatically in Outlook as I block them, why cant Telstra server filter out these spam emails instead of just emptying the trash bin on webmail.
