Phoney websites/employment scams
Woodside alerts website users to be aware of phoney websites and accompanying internet “scams” such as “phishing” and other techniques designed to trick people into giving out their personal information.
Fake websites often mimic a company’s genuine website, incorporating their name and logo. Their aim is to entice users to log onto the site and submit personal information or undertake some other activity (including providing money) in the expectation they will offered employment or receive some other benefit.
Woodside is working with authorities to limit the impact of these scams on Woodside. In the meantime, the company urges people to ensure the websites they visit and the emails they receive are genuine.
