  • Look out for this email scam

    5 July 2022

    We’re warning small businesses about an increase in email phishing scams.

    One of the scams we’re currently seeing tells people their Small Business Superannuation Clearing House (SBSCH) payment has been processed. The email asks them to open an attachment to complete some further details.

    Opening the attachment takes you to a fake Microsoft login page designed to steal your login details. Entering your password could give the scammer access to your Microsoft account, allowing them to reset your passwords for other accounts too.

    You can see an example of the email below. If you get an email like this, don’t click on any links or open any attachments. Delete the email straight away.

    We do sometimes use emails and SMS. But we will never:

    • send an unsolicited message asking you to respond with your personal information
    • send you an email or SMS with a link to log in to our online services.

    You can also visit our website to find out the latest tax and super scams and how to report them.

    Next steps:

    Scam email that claims to be from ATO. Its title reads 'SBSCH - payment processed'.
