We’re testing new ways to provide scam statistics and give you the data you need.

Find out how to use this report and share your feedback with us at the bottom of the page.

This data is based on reports provided to the ACCC by web form and over the phone.

The data is published on a monthly basis. Our quality assurance processes may mean the data changes from time to time.

Some upper level categories include scam reports classified under ‘Other’ or reports without a lower level classification due to insufficient detail provided. Consequently, upper level data is not an aggregation of lower level scam categories.

How to use this report

The whole report is interactive. Tap or click anywhere on the charts to add filters and find the data you want.

  • Apply filters from the dropdown menus at the top of the report.
  • Choose more filters by tapping or clicking the arrow button  at the top right-hand corner.
  • Remove all filters by tapping or clicking the ‘Clear all filters’ button  at the top right-hand corner.
  • Hover over (or tap) anything to see a breakdown of the data, and right mouse-click (or tap and hold) to show that data in a table.
  • Apply multiple filters on a desktop device by holding the control (CTRL) key and clicking the data you want to select.
