SCAM NEWS: Scam Alert: Australian Bushfires and Scams
An Alert from the Official ScamWatch https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/
Australian Bushfires Spawn Scammers Too!
The start of 2020 has not been an easy one for Australia, particularly those impacted by the bushfires. Australia’s office government Scamwatch is warning all Australians to be on the lookout for fundraising scams and do their research when donating so that money can get to those who are in need, rather than those who would take advantage.
Following every disaster, it is natural to want to help and donate as quickly as possible. However, scammers also follow disasters in order to take advantage of the generosity of Australians and good people around the world.
These scammers will most often pretend to be associated with well-known charities, large businesses or government departments to make them look legitimate.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
- Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
