Disguised in supposedly respectable garb, brazen scammers try to relieve Austrians of their hard-earned savings.

Dear customer, you have an outstanding refund from oesterreich.gv.at. Our transaction management system recognizes that you are entitled to this payment.” (Lieber Kunde, Sie haben eine ausstehende Rückerstattung von oesterreich.gv.at. Unser Transaktionsmanagementsystem erkennt, dass Sie zum Erhalt dieser Zahlung berechtigt sind.“)

It’s just a small excerpt from an email you may have received in your inbox over the past few days. However, behind the message – which at first glance seems pleasing, especially in complex, inflation-plagued times – is no government agency waving cash gifts. Too often, victims have clicked on the link below and hoped to receive the promised amounts of several hundred euros. But cybercriminals send links to fake websites and want personal and financial data.
The phishing emails can be recognized by impersonal salutations (“Hello customer”), suspicious sender addresses, unclear content (what the refund is supposed to be for is not explained), and links to click on. The Federal Criminal Police Office advises being suspicious, never clicking on email links, installing security software, and changing passwords regularly.
