Phone scam“Yes, we do have a significant issue with scams,’’ he said.
“The ACCC leads project called Scam Watch and the ACMA, the Australian communications and media authority within my portfolio, is leading a major portfolio within the industry on how we can crack down on scams.
“One of the issues has been that a lot of scammers have been using so-called spoofing or overstamping of the number from which the call appears to originate. So Australians will get a phone call. It will look like it’s coming from a well recognised number that’s used by the Australian Tax Office or another well known organisation that advertises inbound numbers.
