Scams Information Session - Consumer Affairs Victoria

Tuesday 4 September
1.30pm to 2.30pm.

Many older Victorians are attractive targets for scammers because they often own substantial assets and have access to life savings and superannuation.

Older Victorians are also the fastest growing online user group in the country, using online channels to keep in touch with children, family and friends, to correspond via email, watch YouTube videos or catch up TV, or to research and book travel, to name a few.

Consumer Affairs Victoria is working with the Public Libraries Victoria Network to reduce the detriment caused by scammers by building greater awareness and understanding of online scams amongst older Victorians.

Topics to be covered in the session include:

  • Identifying Scams
  • Financial cost of scams
  • Different types of scams
  • Identifying Theft
  • How to Protect Yourself
  • Telemarketing
  • Travelling conmen
  • The Role of Consumer Affairs Victoria

Where -Brighton Library, 14 Wilson Street Brighton, The Round.
