Scam Awareness Week

30 Sep 2022


Scam Awareness Week

You may have been a victim of fraud in the past or know someone who has, it can happen to anyone. Usually, it’s a case of unsuspecting victims being tricked into handing over money to criminals.

The 8th of November kicks off Scam Awareness Week, which aims to highlight to people what to watch out for. We want to share this information from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), to make sure we are doing everything we can do to help you recognise and report a potential scam.

“As Plan Managers and Support Coordinators, we do everything we possibly can to protect our participants from scams and fraud but the more awareness that is out there on our participant’s behalf the better,” says Emma Thornton at Pathways to Care.
