ASIC renewal email is a scam. That is it's fake.

If you receive an email like the following that appears to be from ASIC please be aware that it is a scam. It's a good fake email.

All but one link is legitimate. The link to the "Renewal letter" is the link that will take you to a malicious site.

I've received a number of these emails and it is hard to see immediately if they're fake. Since ASIC send out reminders via email, and you don't want to miss renewing your business name, there's an added pressure that may trick people. My experience with ASIC is they give no latitude for mistakes which again adds extra pressure.

Don't click on the link. Instead go to the ASIC site and log in directly to your account. Check there if there's anything outstanding. If you're still concerned give them a call.
