Customers of Australia's QANTAS airlines are being urged to stay alert for an email phishing scam promising rewards of cash and frequent flyer points in exchange for participating in a survey suposedly to do with their insurance products.

On Monday, the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) released a statement on its Facebook page warning Qantas customers of the “sophisticated” scam.

“This is a sophisticated phishing scam that aims to steal your personal information, including your email and password, contact info and bank account details,” said the warning.

According to ACMA, the email is “cunningly crafted” and looks almost identical to a real Qantas email. It is a “reminder to be vigilant about keeping your personal information safe and secure—if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!”

The email will have the subject line ‘Customer Satisfaction Survey, Earn up to 95 AUD Plus 1,000 bonus Qantas Points*’. If you receive this email, ACMA advises that you delete it immediately.

The email would confuse the most savvy of internet users - so be very careful.
