According to Scamwatch in 2019 alone $142 billion Australian dollars was lost to scams. The most common themes of these scams were false investments, malicious remote access and deceitful romance & dating. As digital technologies evolve, services continue to move online, and the gap in digital literacy remains a pressing social issue.
