Fraud Week

National Consumer Fraud Week (19 - 25 March) is an education and awareness campaign run by The Australasian Consumer Fraud Taskforce aimed at fighting scams.

Scammers stop at nothing to target victims, including adopting a personal touch. So whether you're answering a phone call, opening email, chatting online, shopping or even looking for love, if you suspect a scam, slam it by:

  • Resisting the urge to respond - press ‘delete’, throw them out or hang up.
  • Be wary of the personal touch - watch out for scammers posing as someone that you know and trust, or pretending to know you.
  • Taking care of your identity - personal details are private and invaluable – keep them that way.

Fighting fraud: we can all play a part
