ASIC Scam Warning
ASIC have advised us that another batch of Scam Emails have recently been doing the rounds and had been sent to a large number of people . If you have received an email recently from ASIC please check the details below:
Some flaws in the FAKE emails include:
- The sender displays the name "ASIC Messaging Service" however this can be misleading.
- Renewal date is incorrect
- The subject does not include your entities name
- The renewal link goes to a website not associated with ASIC (You can find this out by hovering over the link).
If you are still unsure you can also check the renewal date on the ASIC site to confirm. https://connectonline.asic.gov.au/
Please note that if Jamiesons Accounting acts as your ASIC Agent, all of your ASIC communication will come via our office, and we will forward to you any instructions regarding the communication.

MyGov Scam Warning
A false email is also circulating claiming to come from MyGov and contains the subject line, "Important Information regarding your account" and also includes the MyGov logo.
The email asks you to click on a link to claim your refund and leads to a fake tax refund form asking for personal details.
