To take the ACCC Scamwatch challenge and to read more see:

The Commonwealth Bank as part of their ownership have a web page that links to a number of articles re scams:

I am sure there are many in the partnership who are producing similar material. So take the time to read and refresh yourself about some of the advice, get educated or refresh your knowledge about what to look for and remember to report the scams when you find them.
