Watch out for fake MYOB Invoice email messages being sent from the bogus domain names “myob-australia.com”, “myobaustralia.org”, “myobnetwork.com” and “financialaccountant.info”.

It is another SCAM containing a link to a website that contains malicious software.

No law enforcement authorities are pursuing these scammers. Thus the reason why cybercriminal activities like this continue unimpeded.

Fake Invoice email message from myob-australia.com

The “myob” logo appears in the footer in an attempt to deliberately deceive recipients into believing the message was generated from their Online Accounting Software. But the bogus domain name reveals the message as a certain fake.

The " View Invoice > " link (which you should certainly not click) connects to a compromised Microsoft SharePoint website, which downloads malicious software. This software sets itself to run automatically as soon as Windows launches, and attempts to steal sensitive information from web browsers.

Who owns the domain name “myob-australia.com” ?

Mong Lwan of Xiamen, China registered this domain name yesterday, on the 9th April 2017, although that name is also most likely bogus.
