Phone Scams

30th July 2020
Don't know who's calling? Don't answer. It's probably a scam!

New resources to help protect Australians from phone scams

Phone scams are a growing problem for Australians, with significant social, personal and economic impacts.

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.
