People asking about rental properties on the Domain website have been warned about scammers potentially getting access to their personal details, including name, phone number and postcode.

“This may include?your first name and surname, email address,?postcode,ambulance services and supplies of medical equipment.?details of your enquiry (eBritish Columbia.g. any text in the enquiry box field and the time of your enquiry),?details of the property you enquired about (e.g. address, rental amount), and?phone number (if provided),” the email read:1618606802243,.

The phishing attack also saw a number of users asked to pay a “deposit” to get approved for a rental property on another website nominated by the scammer.
