The Australian Human Rights Commission is aware of a suspicious email circulated on January 18, falsely claiming to be from Commission staff.
The email is sent from the address legalright @ humanrights.gov.au, which is not an email address used by the Commission.
Recipients are advised not to open any attachments and to delete the email.
The Commission has reported the email to relevant law enforcement.
