I have never received a scam email related to myGov. Today I went into the Medicare App to check on dates of prior vaccines and one of the options in the account is to access myGov. I logged out of Medicare and 30 minutes later I received the below email:

"You have a message in your myGov inbox.

Click ngov.au <link removed> to view

Regards, myGov team"

Coincidence ??

yes. :) It is a marvelous thing!
 
I really am missing out. Never had a Nigerian prince email me, or fake linkt text me, or Colesworths, or ATO, or… guess I’m not going to enough of the ‘blue’ websites that the rest of you filthy crowd are! 😁
Or it could be that I’ve never had a fakebook or myface or Insta, or snapthing, or whatever account.

I did take a taxi to and from an airport in the past week, so legitimately fell for that scam.
 
Love some of the email addresses

These scams all seem fairly pointless to me, yes if you reply they have found a real person with a real email address..big deal
What next, how do they spin their initial silly emails into something more sinister that may get them some money ?
 
I don't see the point of these. We get they all the time. There's no clickable link or attachment. Do they actually belive someone wold be fstupid enough to be fooled (althought many get scared by this kind of thing and can get fooled I suppose) and call the number? Which presumably asks for personaly details or links to a high cost paid call?

If one "did" have a bogus PayPal charge then one disputes that via a direct login to your paypal account, not by calling the scammer.

And just as with MYGov messages, they also "spoil" the scam by repeatedly sending similar emails to the same address a number of times.

The reality is that they only need one person to be stupid/ignorant enough for the payoff to be worthwhile.

I think lists of validated real addresses have value to scammers, and can be sold for $.
