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。
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.
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.
Tax scams seem to be everywhere at the moment and Scamwatch is warning people not to engage with phone calls or emails they receive threatening arrest or jail over unpaid tax debts.
