The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is warning AFA Members to watch out for scam emails that claim to be from the ACCC but in fact contain
links that can infect your computer with malware.

In the past week, several businesses have reported receiving bogus requests from the ACCC to respond to a complaint that has been made about their business,
or seek payment for an infringement notice for breach of copyright.

Both scams encourage the recipient to find out more by either clicking on a link disguised as a .pdf file or responding to contact details in the email.
In the first scam, the embedded link is actually a .zip file that will download malware on to your computer or device.
