Welcome to my school. Stevie’s Scam School. Yeah, great. Hello. My name is Stevie,
the reformed scam artist, and I’m here to teach you
how to avoid being scammed. On with today’s lesson. This lesson is named the ‘government agency scam’.
Here’s how it works. The Scammer mocks up this real professional letter,
looking like it comes from some government office. They’d send this to small businesses such as yours
stating that you can apply for a tax refund if you enter your bank details online. Bang! Once you’ve entered your information,
I could scam you out of all sorts of stuff! Not good form, I know.
But hey – I’m helping you out now! For instance, most Australian government
websites end with .gov.au Also, call your bank straight away
if you may have provided your details to these crafty tikes, and warn the government agency
that this scam is using their name. Remember, keep one eye open,
and the other one on the, um, actually, keep ‘em both open. Stevie’s Scam School. Yeah! Nice!
