We have been alerted to a scam email being sent to .au registrants impersonating auDA, the .au domain administrator.

This email is a scam and it requests personal information including scanned copies of identification documents from the recipient.

If you or one of your customers receive an email requesting this information, we advise all recipients to not respond. Instead, please notify ACCC's Scamwatch.

If someone has already provided personal details in response to this scam email, they will need to make a report to their state or territory police force.

auDA will only request this kind of material via us, your registrar.


Please note, this scam is affecting all domain registrars in Australia and is not related to N.A.D. As such, please note this scam email may be regarding your other .au domains with other providers.
