SCAMwatch is once again warning members of the community, particularly the Chinese community, to take note of family or friends who say they have unexpectedly won a lot of money from someone who has called them from Hong Kong.
SCAMwatch is warning consumers about a telemarketing survey which focuses on casinos in various Australian cities, including Canberra. This appears to be the first step in a new scam that has been targeting Australian consumers to convince them to provide money and personal information to scammers.
Scams target you—Protect your identity is the latest message from the Australasian Consumer Fraud Taskforce. Treat your personal details like you would treat money—don't leave them lying around for others to take!
