[AusNOG] Dealing with ASIO

We recently had a request for information from an individual from ASIO requesting information for one of our clients.
Upon receiving their request for information - the email address originated from a Bigpond email address.

Thinking this is extremely weird - I called ASIO directly and confirmed that this individual works for them and confirmed the phone number. All appears to be ok. I also asked if its normal for email to come from a non asio/gov domain and apparently its normal.....

Anyone see this ? Seems extremely odd.
