Safety Warning: Fake Extortion, Spam Emails

There is currently a spam campaign threatening ANU users that they will be blackmailed if they do not send them money.

The threat starts by indicating that the sender has a recording of the recipient that they will send to all their contacts,
they employ a number of IT jargon terms in order to attempt to establish that this fake blackmail is legitimate.

If you are the recipient of one of these emails, please forward it to IT Security at IT.Security@anu.edu.au then delete it, do not respond to the sender.
