Exclusive: Scams utilise phishing attacks on Centrelink, ATO and Medicare accounts using obtained login details

Thousands of MyGov accounts are being suspended each month out of concern they’ve been breached via “scam-in-a-box” kits being sold by criminals on the dark web.

The products were being used to create fake websites and provide the specialist knowledge required to launch phishing attacks on Centrelink, Australian Tax Office and Medicare accounts.

So far this year, more than 4,500 MyGov scams have been confirmed, with thousands of accounts suspended each month due to suspected fraud.

In some cases, the kits come with security controls and allow criminals to run multiple scams at once, before quickly closing them to avoid detection.

Some can identify when they’re being used by more IT-savvy users, and direct them to the official MyGov website. Many fake websites are almost identical to the real version.
