Be aware of scams impersonating AUSTRAC

4 August 2021

We are receiving reports of scammers sending emails to reporting entities and members of the public pretending to be from AUSTRAC and seeking payment of fines, taxes or other financial transfers. We will never demand a payment via email.

These scams attempt to trick you into paying money or giving out your personal information. Scammers often pretend to be from trusted organisations like AUSTRAC.

If you think an email claiming to be from us is not genuine, do not reply to it. Report online and email scams to Cyber.gov.au.
