Online scammers are sending out fake and spoofed CSL Plasma emails like the one below to their potential victims. The fake emails claim the recipients have been awarded a cash grant and they should contact a fake CSL Plasma email address in order to claim. If contacted, the scammers will ask their potential victims to send their personal information, which they will keep and sell to other scammers. They will then ask their potential victims to send money in order to receive their so-called Christmas gift, the cash grant. But, if the money is sent, the scammers or thieves will take it and disappear, leaving their victims without the grant or money they were promised.
