​Scams & fraud

My client has been the victim of a scam. What should they do?

You should take steps to limit the damage and protect yourself from future scams. For example:

  • if you shared your details with a scammer or sent them money — contact your bank as soon as possible to report the scam. Close the account if the scammer has your account details
  • if you think your identify has been stolen contact the police
  • contact Fair Trading NSW report a scam or ACCC ScamWatch report a scam.
