Although the email appeared as if it came from, it was not. It was spoofed. Spoofing is the process of altering an email message to make it appear as if it came from someone else.

The scammers created the file name "" on the Chinese website "". So, this would make the link to this phishing web page: http://www.truemetrics .cn/ .

They did this to trick you into thinking the link goes to the ANZ website, which is located at website address But, clicking on the link will only take you to the Chinese website hxxp://, and not the legitimate website

The Phishing ANZ web page located hxxp://

ANZ Phishing website hxxp://
