Fraudulent letters are doing the rounds: Unknown third parties are currently sending letters in the name of the Austrian Regulatory Authority for Broadcasting and Telecommunications (RTR) requesting payment for a supposed ‘service fee’.

RTR warns against fake letters
The letters are created with no small amount of effort, they are labelled with the RTR logo, contact details and their QR code. This is where it gets risky: scanning the QR code takes you to a fake website and, after another click, to a form in which you are asked to provide account details to debit the said ‘service fee’.
‘We do not charge for this, RTR generally does not send invoices to users. Please ignore the fictitious letter,’ says RTR, stating that they are all forgeries. Under no circumstances should you click on the link behind the QR code, according to the warning.

RTR has already taken steps to have the websites that can be accessed via the QR codes contained in the letters taken offline. If you have already entered data on the fake website, you should contact the police.
