Event Description

They are organised crime. We need to be organised in defence!

With the advent of the internet, social media and texting, we have experienced increasingly sophisticated cyber scams in every aspect of life. Scammers use duplicated phone numbers, text message phishing, shopping scams, romance scams, ransomware, and much more targeting anyone worldwide. From any part of the world the perpetrators target anyone with access to money and/or is vulnerable.
