Scams are getting harder to spot. Australians reported a record $3.1 billion lost to scams last year. That's 80% more than the year before.

Behind the growing numbers are everyday Australians who lost money to scams – sometimes their life savings. And the true cost of scams is more than a dollar figure. Scams can have a devastating impact on victims' lives.

As scammers become increasingly sophisticated in their tactics, we need to better coordinate our efforts to stop them.

The National Anti-Scam Centre has been set up to coordinate government, law enforcement and the private sector to combat scams. It builds on the work of the ACCC’s Scamwatch service.

Together we will make Australia a harder target for scammers.
