Being alert and staying safe

Unfortunately, evolving situations like the coronavirus outbreak present new opportunities for fraudsters to create email and phishing scams designed to capture personal information and ultimately steal people's money. At times like this, scammers target individuals and businesses through coronavirus-themed emails, trying to entice people to click harmful links or downloads.

If you receive an unexpected SMS or email, do not click on any links as they may redirect you to a fake site designed to capture your personal credentials. You can report scams by emailing scams@macquarie.com. If you need assistance, please call us on 133 174.
