ScamwatchScamwatch is run by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

It provides information to consumers and small businesses about how to recognise, avoid and report scams.

The ACCC and Scamwatch team greatly appreciate your contribution to the collection of scam-related data.

This information is used to keep Australians informed about the latest scams in circulation.

Report a scam

You can report a scam to the ACCC by completing the report a scam web form.

Do not forward a scam email to the ACCC (or anyone else) as they often contain malicious software (malware) and viruses. You can include details of the scam email in the web form, and then delete the email.

Take action

If you have been threatened, assaulted or had your property stolen, contact your local police immediately.

If you think your bank account details have been compromised, alert your bank or financial institution immediately.

If the scammer first made contact through a website, social media, by email or phone, contact the relevant company with the scammer's details. Your report will help them take action to disrupt scams.
