Women more likely to fall victim to scams

GLADSTONE residents are being urged not to send money or personal details to strangers, after information released by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission revealed so far in 2015, Australians have lost $45m to scams.

The top five scams are dating and romance; investment schemes, inheritance scams; Nigerian scams and betting and sports investment schemes.

While scams do not specifically target one group, people over 65 years of age were most likely to fall victim to scams and women were more susceptible than men, the ACCC has reported.
