    Warning to avoid unauthorised departmental website

     

    The Department of Immigration and Border Protection has warned web users to be aware of an unauthorised website posing as an official departmental site.

     

    The website, www. immigovau. co, mimics the departmental website in appearance and layout, particularly when using certain browsers.

     

    A departmental spokesman said it was a well-camouflaged fake which should be avoided and that all Australian Government websites end with the country code gov.au.

     

    “While there is no evidence that the department’s own web presence has been compromised, we advise web users who are looking for information on the department to make sure they visit the department’s official site at http://www.immi.gov.au,”'>http://www.immi.gov.au,” the spokesman said.

     

    “This issue is not unique to our department and is a common issue for companies and organisations which use websites to communicate information to their clients.”

     

    DIBP said web users should ensure they had the http://www.immi.gov.au address in their browser when they were looking for information on the department to avoid this unauthorised website.
