SCAMwatch is warning small businesses to continue to be alert to the fake ‘Yellow Pages’ business directory scam. The scammers are now operating a site registered in Austria, ‘www.yellow-page-australia.at’, after their previous site, ‘www.yellow-page-australia.com’, was shut down.

Fake advertisements offering used vehicles for lower than expected prices continue to appear on Australian car websites, online classifieds and online auction sites.

Australians who use the internet to buy goods from overseas should be wary of fake emails asking them to pay 'Customs' a range of fees, duty or taxes before their goods are released to them.
