How to spot when something’s ‘too good to be true’


tomorrow money 054054

It’s fairly common these days to get  text messages, phone calls or emails offering something for free.

Sometimes people may even knock on your door with a promise of the latest “great offer”.

As this video from the ACCC shows, these out-of-the-blue deals or offers are often ‘too good to be true’.

Scammers use free offers to try and get access to peoples’ money or personal information, which is illegal.

If you think you may have come across a scam, you can call the ACCC Indigenous info line: 1300 302 143.
