Scams protection and awareness seminar.

Duration: 46 minutes

We are hoping that by creating a conversation around scams we can significantly reduce the impact of scams to our community, friends and family.

Recently talking to our customers, businesses and communities we have seen a significant increase in scams and the impact they are having on the community. The ACCC's targeting scams report 2018 says Australians lost nearly $489.7 million dollars to a variety of scams in 2018 and the average loss per scam is $6,000.

We believe we can help through providing awareness and knowledge to empower you to protect yourself against various scams.

The statistics in the presentation are sourced from the ACCC targeting scams report of 2018.

Scamwatch, in conjunction with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), developed The Little Black Book of Scams which you can download.

In this presentation, we cover:

  • Types of Scams and how they target you. This will provide an overview of the different types of scams and explain how you might be targeted.
  • Scam prevention, case studies, and warning signs. We will explore some warning signs via case studies to show you what to look out for when dealing with a potential scammer and how to protect yourself.
  • Reporting and Support. We will direct you to the available resources that you can access for support and reporting.
