Scam Watch - 'Remoting In' Con & Real Estate Email Scam

A sophisticated cyber scam targeting consumers in the real estate sector is costing South Australians thousands of dollars.

Meanwhile SA Police have noticed a rise in reports of “Remote Access" scams – particularly involving mobile phones.

These scams involve a potential victim being contacted, either by phone or through a messenger service, and convinced to install a remote access or viewing application on to their device.

The Commissioner for Consumer Affairs, Dini Soulio, joins Jennie Lenman to share information about the latest scams affecting our regions and what consumers can do to protect themselves.
