Be aware of Scams! They're on the rise.
There's no better time to remind everyone that people aren't always who they say they are.
Did you know that 3 in every 4 scams involve impersonation - people pretending to be people we should trust.
Always ask yourself: who's really there?
In 2023 alone, there have been over 81,000 reports of impersonation scams.
$91 million has been stolen.
They came via text message, posed as family, government, road tolls and bank imitation.
The Government's ACCC have created an educational site to deliver valuable information to you about scams.
Arm yourself with this knowledge so that you won't fall victim.
