Hello to our friends in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community.
Scams Awareness in the Deaf Community. New Auslan video: scams awareness
This short video (3 minutes and 15 seconds) in Auslan will tell you about how to watch out for scams and protect yourself against them. It also contains information about the most common scam types Consumer Protection sees.
The Video has captions and spoken English.
We have recently collaborated with Access Plus WA Deaf to create a Scams Awareness video in Auslan that we wanted to share with you.
Did you know that latest scam statistics show that Australians lost over $280 million to scams in 2021 alone?
At Consumer Protection WA we are passionate about preventing money losses to scammers.
We believe that education about scams leads to prevention, so please take a few minutes to view our Auslan video.
Feel free to share it with your friends and family – the more people that are warned the better.
You can also find out more about the latest scams by following us on Twitter or Facebook.
