Are you leaving your personal data wide open for scammers?

Sadly, identity theft is now one of the most common crimes in Australia, and can lead to all sorts of associated illegal activities. Follow SCAMwatch's top 6 'protect yourself' tips to leave scammers out in the cold.

  1. Lock your mailbox, and shred your bills and other important documents before throwing out.
  2. Stop and think before providing your details online.
  3. Don't leave yourself vulnerable to a scammer - always use password protection, don't share access with others (including remotely), update security software and back up content.
  4. Set and use strong passwords which are difficult to guess, and change them regularly.
  5. If you think it's a scam, don't respond.
  6. You can get a free copy every year to check that no one is using your name to borrow money or run up debts. Visit ASIC's MoneySmart website to find out how to get a free copy of your credit report.
