Avoid social media scams this summer holidays

January 11, 2016

 

You are advised to be careful of social media scams during the summer holidays. Scammers may use popular social media websites to run fake campaigns appealing for contributions to support the needy and disadvantaged.

 

These fake campaigns may include links to legitimate looking websites that provide details for you to make a payment. However, any contributions you make are likely to go directly into the pockets of the scammers themselves.

 

These websites may also harvest your personal and financial details for criminal gain, or host malicious software (malware) that is then installed on your computer.

 

Staying safe:

Make your charity contributions through legitimate websites. If you are unsure about a social media post or website, contact the relevant charity organisation using a number obtained from its website or the phone book.

 

Do not provide your credit card or personal details to anyone or any website you do not trust completely.

 

If you need help with this, please call on 03 9596 4547 to book an appointment or remote support.
