Be wary of calls offering you investment opportunities. This could be a scam.
Sophisticated financial investment phone scams are targeting Australians. Scammers impersonate well-known companies, including banks, and promise big payouts, quick money or guaranteed returns and high interest rates. They may then follow-up these cold calls with an official-looking email and attachments to make the scam seem legitimate.
If you receive a suspicious unsolicited call like this, hang up immediately and report it to Scamwatch.
