Scams Awareness Week

Each year we spend a week raising awareness of how scams operate in our community. 

Scams Awareness Week 2021

This year, Scams Awareness Week will take place on 8 to 12 November 2021. The theme for the week is ‘Let’s talk scams’.

During Scams Awareness Week, the ACCC and our partner organisations will be encouraging everyone to talk to their family and friends about scams.

Scams Awareness Week and the work of the Scams Awareness Network is possible thanks to our government, business and community group partners. Our partners recognise how widespread and serious scams are, and they’re committed to getting the word out about it during Scams Week.

Scams Awareness Week partners include:

  • leading banks and financial institutions
  • technology companies
  • online and social media platforms
  • telecommunications providers
  • industry associations
  • consumer groups
  • small business
