There have also been reports of a scam in which an email is sent which is meant to appear as a subpoena issued by the Federal Court, and which requires that information be supplied via a link. Please note that under the Federal Courts Rules, a subpoena must be served personally (in person) and not by email. An example of a fraudulent email is shown below:
