This data is based on reports provided to the ACCC by web form and over the phone.

The data is published on a monthly basis. Our quality assurance processes may mean the data changes from time to time.

Some upper level categories include scam reports classified under ‘Other’ or reports without a lower level classification due to insufficient detail provided. Consequently, upper level data is not an aggregation of lower level scam categories.
