Victims of scams & identity theft

Every year hundreds of Australians are affected by fraud, including scams. Even the most careful people can become victims of fraud. Fraud is a crime where somebody deliberately deceives or tricks another for financial gain. Fraud and scams can have a lasting impact on those directly involved as well as their families and the wider community.

If you are affected by fraud or know someone who might be, the pamphlet, Fighting Scams and Fraud (PDF 478KB) might be useful.
