Australians are set to lose a record amount to scams in 2019, with projections from losses reported to Scamwatch and other government agencies so far expected to exceed $532 million by the end of the year, surpassing half a billion dollars for the first time.

SCAMwatch is reminding people to beware of online scams – surveys, emails and social-media posts – offering fake gift vouchers or other bogus inducements in return for disclosing credit card and other personal information.

The ACCC has quickly acted to stop the individuals behind TVI Express from enticing consumers to join its so called money-making venture.

SCAMwatch warns consumers to be wary of an advance fee fraud scam disguised as ‘winnings’ from Euphoria Travelling Group.
