Security

Whilst every scammer might operate a little differently, there are a few warning signs to look out for whenever you’re doing anything online:

  1. Scammers tend to approach you, and they will often use some sort of convincing story about why they are contacting you. They may contact you regularly and use high pressure sales tactics, computer or tax problems or use urgency to convince you to take their bait.
  2. Scammers can play with your emotions, enlisting the thrill of a potential win, possibility of love, or fear of falling into arrears to trick you into taking action. They know just the right strings to pull.
  3. Scammers often use professional and official-looking websites and shopping sites to convince you they are legitimate. They are also extremely savvy at faking the logo and branding of larger companies such as the ATO, Australia Post or PayPal. When you receive an email you’re not expecting, always question whether it’s real or fake.
  4. Scammers may contact your mobile phone carrier and ‘port out’ your phone to a different carrier or SIM card. By doing this, they can take control of your mobile number and have security messages sent to your phone in an attempt to hijack your accounts. If your mobile phone stops working, or you receive advice from your provider that your number is being ported, this is a big warning sign.
  5. Scammers typically ask for money, whether immediately or after months of grooming. For payment, scammers may direct you to their nearest post office, a wire transfer service or any number of other payment methods, including direct bank transfers, pre-loaded debit cards, gift cards or virtual currency such as Bitcoin. A request for payment via an unusual method is often a sign of a scam.
  6. Scammers will often get your details incorrect. Be extremely cautious when you receive an email with your name misspelt.

Whilst there is no silver bullet, there are certainly steps you can take to protect yourself online. Below are some tips:

  • Stay alert and remember that scams exist. Whenever you’re dealing with someone who has approached you online, always consider that it could be a scam. If in doubt, do some online research to find out more about them or the business they represent.

 

  • Never send money or give your personal details to someone you have only met online, or don’t completely trust.

 

  • Don’t accept contact requests on social media from people you don’t know and be careful how much personal information you share online. Scammers may use your personal information and photos to steal your identity or gather information about you, so their approach seems more familiar or genuine.

 

  • Do not open suspicious texts, pop-up windows or emails. Be especially cautious when the sender has misspelt your name, asks for your banking details or promises you money. If it’s a company you already deal with, look up their contact information online and call them to check whether the message you received was legitimate.

 

  • Be vigilant when shopping online. Always use shopping sites you know and trust. Be extremely wary of offers that seem ‘too good to be true’, because they probably are, and it’s safer to stay away.
     
  • Protect your personal information. Shred utility bills or other documents that contain your personal details or pin numbers before throwing them away.
     

Choose strong passwords for your computers, mobile devices, and every online account. Get tips on setting a secure Internet Banking password here.
