The email message below, which claims the recipients qualify for Australian Government Department of Human Services subsidy benefit, is a phishing scam. The scam is being sent by scammers or cybercriminals to trick the recipients into sending them their personal and financial information. No legitimate company or government organization will send an email message their customers or citizens, asking them to reply with personal and very sensitive information. Therefore, recipients of the same email message should delete it, and should not follow the instructions in it.
