This Scams Awareness Week, learn how to protect yourself from scams and get smarter with your data!

12 August 2019

Scammers are increasingly sophisticated in their attempts to get your money or personal details, taking advantage of new technologies, products and services.

For this year’s Scams Awareness Week, the theme is ‘Too Smart to be Scammed?’ to highlight the fact that scams target people of all backgrounds, ages and income levels across Australia.

There's no one group of people who are more likely to become a victim of a scam – all of us may be vulnerable to a scam at some time.

Scams succeed because they look like the real thing and catch you off guard when you’re not expecting it.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s Scam Watch has some useful tips to help you spot a fake and protect yourself from scams.
