Partnering with industry to fight fraud

Fraud Week: 1 - 7 March 2010

Did you know that around one in 20 Australians are estimated to have been caught by scams? It is also estimated that around two-thirds of consumer fraud now occurs online.

To help fight online fraud, the Commonwealth Bank Group had joined forces with the Australian Bankers’ Association by taking part in Fraud Week. The industry campaign, which ran from 1 – 7 March 2010, focused on raising awareness of online consumer fraud such as scams and hoax emails.

Fraud Week was coordinated by the Australasian Consumer Fraud Taskforce, which is a group of 21 Australian and New Zealand government agencies.
