Phishing, unexpected prize and lottery scams and identity theft are among the 1800 scams which have hit Australia’s indigenous communities, causing losses of $3 million so far this year.
Emails claiming to be from Optus are the latest scam to circulate in Australia as scammers attempt to trick anyone opening the email to provide their credit card information to pay a supposedly unpaid bill from the telco.
Scamming of mobile phone users with premium service texts has already cost Aussies $44,179 this year alone – and $153,197 in losses since 2015.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
