This week is National Scam Awareness Week. This year the focus is on raising awareness of impersonation scams. 72.5% of all scams reported to the National Anti-scam Centre through Scamwatch involve impersonation of a real organisation or person.
This year Scam Awareness Week encourages us all to slow down and ask, “who’s really there?” before we act.
Scamwatch provide some very useful resources including tips and tricks on identifying scams as well as what to do if you feel you have been a victim of a scam on their website https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/research-and-resources/scams-awareness-week-2023
