Warning to any, not so savey computer folk.

Just received an email claiming to be from Qantas Frequent Flyer saying "there system has recorded a failed attempt with your user ID from a different location bla bla bla" ( usual stuff ) and giving a link to follow to update my profile.

Don't go to the link


p.s I knew it was a scam when it went to my company email address...my company does'nt have a frequent flyer account

Yes - there was also an attempted phishing/social engineering attempt on Velocity a few months ago - similar language. It often pays to ring the airline/frequent flyer scheme and double check that no attempt was made to access your account just for peace of mind.

Got something similar in the last week.
 
The Qantas Premier Platinum Card delivers up to 100k Qantas Points, 75 bonus Status Credits, complimentary lounge invitations and travel insurance. All this with a reduced first-year annual fee of $199.
