Online Scams


 

This week is National Consumer Fraud Week, a week long event run by SCAMWATCH/ACCC. National Consumer Fraud Week 2013 is all about helping you ‘outsmart the scammer!’ by learning how to buy and sell safely online without being duped.

OzBargain has a number of countermeasures to block scammers and spammers from posting on our site and currently has 683 domains and 26738 users blocked on our site. This isn’t always enough and it’s important before you make a purchase to make sure you take the proper precautions. SCAMwatch has some good tips but we’d love to hear  your tips on the forum.

currency

The Australian dollar has fallen 5% this week and 10% since April. Will the drop in the dollar affect bargains purchased from the US (Amazon) or overseas travel? Let’s hope it doesn’t drop anymore.
