SCAMwatch

14 04 2010

An online website run by by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). I found SCAMwatch one day when I was browsing for online pharmacies and counterfeit drugs. This website deals with all types of internet fraud, not just counterfeit drugs.

SCAMwatch ran a campaign from March 1-7, 2010. This campaign dealt with all types of internet fraud. It was called online offensive — fighting fraud online.

Their health and medical scams page is very nice. Their definition of medical scams are: These scams try to make money by exploiting people who have a medical condition or who are worried about their health. The scammers offer solutions or cures where none exist or promise to simplify complex health treatments. They have victims stories on the website and they also have ways to protect yourself and a link to report an online scam.
