Reporting a scam

The ACCC and Scamwatch team greatly appreciate your contribution to the collection of scam-related data. This information is used to keep Australians informed about the latest scams in circulation.

Your report is important to the ACCC as this information assists us in monitoring scam trends and taking action where appropriate, including working with industry and looking for innovative ways to disrupt scams.

When you make a report, a record will be kept and you may be contacted by the ACCC if any further information is required. The ACCC doesn’t respond to reports made via the Scamwatch Report a scam form due to the high volume received.
