Unfortunately, scammers are taking advantage of the spread of coronavirus to exploit and play on the fears of consumers across Australia.
There has been a significant increase in email & telephone scams. Unfortunately many of them are very well done and often look very very similar to the emails and websites of official government and trusted organisations.
If you receive unsolicited calls, txts, emails etc, take care to validate their authenticity through alternative means before taking in action, especially if they ask you to login or provide information about yourself. The best approach is to assume all unsolicited communications are suspect until you validates then through a different channel.
The ACCC’s scam watch site is a good source of information and techniques on how to protect yourself against these scams.
Please contact Integrity One if we can assist you with this or any other financial matter.
