Staff at the Australian National University (ANU) have been sent a warning after receiving a scam email claiming new cases of COVID-19 had been recorded on campus. Professor Jodie Bradbury sent a screenshot of the email to his colleagues alerting them of the scam, which was given the subject line “New positive positive COVID-19 cases among staffs” and included a link for the readers to follow.

The event was described as a “really serious and unacceptable situation”, and the University has taken swift action to block the link and warn the community of its potential threat. Instructions were also sent out to advise anyone on how to proceed if the link had been opened.
