You will never be sent the money that was promised.
If you think you have provided your account details, passport, tax file number, licence, Medicare or other personal identification details to a scammer, contact your bank, financial institution, or other relevant agencies immediately.
This might be for requests for gas money or bus and airplane tickets to travel to visit the victim, medical expenses, education expenses etc.
There is usually the promise that the fictitious character will one day join the victim in the victim's country.
We encourage you to report scams to the ACCC via the report a scam page.
