Be Weary Of Scammers Across The Central West

It's Fraud Week this week and the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) Scamwatch reporting network has received 280 reports of scamming from Dubbo.

11 Dubbo residents lost money to online scams in 2016, while nationally $299.8 million were lost, with 200,000 reports of scams across the country.

ACCC Deputy Chair Delia Richard says we should be weary, especially on social media as scammers are increasingly using online platforms to trick unsuspecting people.
