New resources to help protect Australians from phone scams

And, with more people at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, phone scams are on the rise. The ACCC reports people have lost over $1.3 million to scams since the pandemic started.
Scammers use sophisticated tactics to steal money or information from people—and sadly, vulnerable Australians are often a target. Which is where your help comes in.
