COVID-19 Scam and Fraud Information

The impact of the new coronavirus disease, COVID-19, is being felt all over the world. With lots of information being published, it is vital that what we share is accurate and true.

Unfortunately, criminals are using this crisis to scam the public – targeting vulnerable groups as they seek to capitalise on the pandemic. People who have limited English language skills are particularly vulnerable to these scams.

This is why we decided to make information about the most recent scams we could find available in a number of languages. Our talented and wonderful volunteer translators and proofreaders have collaborated with us to produce translations of these scams.

These translations are available to everyone, so please share on social media, send out via e-mail or just send it to a friend or relative.

The English version of the text is available here. 

Thanks to all the brilliant linguists who worked on this project. They all dedicated their time voluntarily to translate the text into a number of languages. Thank you!
