If we become aware of any scams or frauds perpetuated under our name, we will endeavour to raise awareness of this illegal activity on this page as soon as possible.

Phishing Emails, Pop-ups and Phone Calls

Be aware of emails or pop ups that purport to be authored or sent by the Grimsey Group that redirect you to an external site, require you to divulge sensitive information, contain demands for money or financial data (such as bank account or credit card details) or that offer prizes or awards that are at odds the Grimsey Group usual business of providing professional services.

The same applies to any phone calls you receive where the caller says they are from the Grimsey Group or calling on its behalf.

If any of the above applies to a communication you receive, and/or you are suspicious of the communication then don’t divulge the requested information or do what the communication requests of you.  Do not in any of these cases attempt to reply or contact the alleged sender or open any suspicious emails or attachments. If possible take a screen shot of the communication.  If it is a phone call end the call without providing information.  Please contact a Grimsey Group staff member as soon as possible to report this.

Any legitimate Grimsey Group emails will always come from a Grimsey Group email which ends in @grimsey.com.au. If you receive an email from a person who claims to be from the Grimsey Group but with an address other than @grimsey.com.au do not click any links in the email, open any attachments or take action based on the content of the email.  Please call a Grimsey Group staff member to inform them of it as soon as possible.
