Welcome to the new, improved SCAMwatch website run by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. Here you will find information to help you identify scams, deal with the scammers and protect yourself from scams. Take a few moments to explore the new site and if you have been approached with a scam, please report it. Most importantly—sign up for our SCAMwatch radar alerts! These alerts will keep you informed of the scams that come across our radar. They will also keep you up-to-date with new developments on the SCAMwatch website.
The new SCAMwatch will include stories from people who have been targeted by scams. If you have been stung by a scam and you would like to share your story with other SCAMwatch visitors, please tick the appropriate box when you report a scam to the ACCC and we will contact you to get more details. There is no obligation to use your real name.
