The 2012 National Consumer Fraud Week 'Slam Scams!' campaign runs from 19 to 25 March and aims to raise awareness of scam delivery methods so that you can identify and slam a scam at the point of contact.

The ACFT would like to know about any scams that you have received and how you have responded to them.
