Hi Ben,

Pretty normal and as long as you document your verification checks (just
to cover yourself) I would comply with their request. Just out of
interest in what form did they ask you to provide this info? I am
guessing this was not a request for interception but for account details
or some such? Don't answer that - but check with them how they want the
info provided to them.

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.
