澳大利亚竞争和消费者委员会(ACCC)的诈骗监察服务(Scamwatch)提醒澳大利亚华裔社区警惕两种令人震惊的骗局,这两种骗局都涉及以假绑架和威胁逮捕进行敲诈勒索。
Australian businesses reported more than 5800 scams with losses exceeding $7.2 million in 2018, a 53 per cent increase compared to 2017, according to the ACCC’s Targeting scams report.
Gift cards are increasingly the payment method of choice for scammers. Scamwatch reports show more than $5 million was lost in 2018, a 38 per cent increase compared with 2017.

SCAMwatch is warning 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.

With Halloween around the corner, SCAMwatch urges you to be alert to a new type of scareware doing the rounds where scammers try and scare you into handing over money in order to regain control of your computer.
