So often simple tasks can help avoid big and complex problems when it comes to fending off clandestine approaches made by cyber criminals using the internet.
Especially in these COVID-19 times, where cyber criminals have increased their illegal activities, hoping to catch potential victims off-guard as the focus of communities around the world is on the pandemic. Australian bank Westpac, reports that through its own research 85% of Australians agree that there has been a noticeable increase in scam activity since the pandemic.
At IFW Global, we agree with that sentiment too, especially with the increased number of enquiries to our office on a daily basis. The latest report by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission makes for very interesting reading about scam activity surrounding COVID- 19. It’s worth reading to see who criminals are targeting and how they are doing it, through the research conducted by a Federal Government agency.
