The ACCC is warning people to stay alert to ‘phishing’ scammers pretending to be from well-known businesses and government departments trying to con unsuspecting victims out of their personal information and money.

Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.

They play on emotional triggers to get you to provide money, gifts or personal details.

If you have sent money to the scammer and particularly if you have provided any personal or financial details, you should contact your financial institution and inform them immediately.

If you have given the scammer information such as account numbers, credit card numbers or passwords, you should immediately change them.
